Art Basel Miami Beach

Bert Rodriguez as Don Bailey, the "Naked Carpet Guy"

The Art Basel issue doesn't hit newsstands until Thursday, but the complete issue is now available online, including our feature story on artist Bert Rodriguez, who in 2006 was reading bedtime stories to handful of people during Basel and now sells art, sight-unseen, to prominent collectors around the world. Monday, we gave you a behind-the-scenes look at our cover shoot. Well, above is another shot that was left out. Rodriguez channels Don Bailey, a man who we've all become familiar with driving on I-95.
