    The documentary "Beauty Is Embarassing", by filmmaker Neil Berkeley and featuring artist Wayne White, formally introduced me to Wayne White's art, though apparently I grew up with his ideas, thanks to Pee Wee's Playhouse. His mission: to make art enjoyable. Good stuff. See the film!

    Loved it, even though the book is heavy and hard to read in bed. Wayne White is delightful and amazing and familiar and hilarious. Good, good stuff.

    Read the STOP SMILING interview with Wayne WhiteTaking Off the Ankle WeightsWayne White, who hails from rural Tennessee, is a Pop Art renaissance man. Largely self-taught, he has worked for three decades as an illustrator, painter, cartoonist and puppeteer. He is the creative mind behind a bevy of projects, ranging from the surrealistic Eighties television show Pee-wee’s Playhouse (for which he won three Emmy’s for his puppet designs) to art direction for the unforgettable Peter Gabriel video “Big Time” (for which he won a Billboard award for best Art Direction) to set designs for Smashing Pumpkins’ “Tonight, Tonight” and lithographed covers for the alt-country band Lampchop (he contributed artwork to four of the band’s albums). In more recent years, he has produced formal works of sculpture, and turned out an ongoing series of text-based pictures he makes from found paintings he covers in words and phrases, positioning the lettering into the original landscape. Although his word-driven art has been frequently compared to the work of Edward Ruscha, White assures STOP SMILING that he didn’t have Ruscha in mind when he first started painting in what has now become one of his signature styles. This past summer, coming off the heals of his Todd Oldham-designed first book, Maybe Now I’ll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve (Ammo Books), White carved out some time to answer a few questions.
