I can't believe I didn't post about this doc when I saw it on PBS earlier this year but it is a must see. We're not friends if you don't like it. Wayne White is so fun and inspiring. Big Lectric Fan To Keep Me Cool While I Sleep is unbelievably brilliant. Buy the movie direct at beautyisembarrassing.com, stream at Netflix, or watch once on Vimeo (for $5). Info:
Raised in the mountains of Tennessee, Wayne White started his career as a cartoonist in New York City. He quickly found success as one of the creators of the TV show, Pee-wee's Playhouse, which led to more work designing some of the most arresting and iconic images in pop culture. The film chronicles the vaulted highs and the crushing lows of a commercial artist struggling to find peace and balance between his work and his art.
