Storyline

Raised in the Tennessee mountains, Wayne White started his career as a cartoonist in NYC. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the Pee-wee's Playhouse TV show which soon led to more work design some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. Recently his word paintings featuring pithy and and often sarcastic text statements finely crafted onto vintage landscape paintings have made him a darling of the fine art world. The movie chronicles the vaulted highs and crushing lows of an artist struggling to find peace and balance between his professional work and his personal art. This is especially complicated for a man who struggles with the virtues he most often mocks in his art...Vanity, ego and fame. Written by Neil Berkeley

Really love this film—Wayne is a character and a talent. His creations, his drive, and his independent spirit are truly inspiring.

It's great to see how other people like Matt Groening, Paul Reubens, and more recognize the creativity and influence that Wayne had. Also, mixing in footage from Wayne's stage show telling his life story is a great technique.

Definitely recommended, for those interested in art and for everyone else who wants to be inspired to follow their passions.

Also, Wayne's word paintings are awesome.

Plus, what other movie has a LBJ puppet head?
