Wayne White Is Worth Admiring In the Beauty Is Embarrassing Documentary


Here's the trailer for Beauty Is Embarrassing, a documentary about artist and Pee Wee's Playhouse set designer and voice actor Wayne White, the man whom Matt Groening describes as "a little Zach Galifianakis, a little Snuffy Smith, a little Unabomber." The film is premiering at SXSW in March, but let's all hope that it comes out for a much wider audience soon after, because it looks like a great inspiration for anyone trying to be creative. Or trying to put cigarette butts into the mouths of children's puppets.

    One of my heroes. His anthology Maybe Now I'll Get The Respect I So Richly Deserve is way more lucidly written than most "artist books."

    The trailer looks a mite cheeseball, but I'll watch anything about the guy who created those Lambchop album covers.
