Beauty is Embarrassing – smARTfilms: Artfilms

This engaging film chronicles the highs and lows of a commercial artist struggling to find peace and balance between his work and his art. Wayne White is a painter, art director, puppeteer, set designer, animator, cartoonist. and illustrator who has won three Emmy Awards for his work on PeeWee’s Playhouse. But as the film shows, White has created SO much more. Featuring interviews with Paul Reubens, Matt Groening, and Mark Mothersbaugh, this entertaining whimsey—much like White himself, “never takes itself too seriously, doesn’t overstay its welcome and never, ever underestimates the value of a chuckle.” – excerpt from The Times-Picayune
