PSIP Description: 
Tennessean commercial artist Wayne White struggles to find a balance between his work and his art.
Long Description: 
Wayne White is a nut. The current art-world darling got his big break when he helped create the unhinged children's show "Pee-Wee's Playhouse." His off-kilter style and self-deprecating sense of humor offer a peak into an imagination that refuses to grow up. This film chronicles the vaulted highs and the crushing lows of this Tennessean commercial artist as he struggles to find peace and balance between his work and his art.
