UGH...do I DARE???


                                   


Gracing the small screen once again...


Catch me today on KREX pimping tonight's FREE Community Cinema screening of BEAUTY IS EMBARRASSING!  This film appeals to both artists and "non-artists" (aren't we really ALL artists in our own way?) alike.  It's a funny, irreverent and ultimately uplifting look at the life and career of artist and production designer Wayne White.  Its core message:  human beings are innately creative and creativity is needed in every aspect of life.  Discover what you're passionate about, tap into your creative spirit and put yourself out into the world, regardless of what others might think.  If you believe in yourself and what you're doing, the world will follow.

Beauty is Embarrassing



Off the Grid Films takes to the airwaves today on KAFM from 12:30-1:00 MST to discuss BEAUTY IS EMBARRASSING - THE WAYNE WHITE STORY.   As a big fan of Pee-wee's Playhouse as a kid, I was fascinated to get a close look at the man responsible for creating and voicing the darkly entrancing puppets and set pieces transmitted to my starkly contrasting middle class family room every Saturday morning.
