When Wayne White suggests to “Go out there and make the world more beautiful” he might just be urging you to shove phone in pocket and take a brisk walk. Maybe walk over to the gallery at 7 Heron Street before his show Ass Kicking Contest closes on August 8th. Check out the work of Wayne and his son Woodrow who evidently know that beauty can be big, hairy and hilarious.

Wayne White is a little bit of everything: illustrator, musician, art director, apparently a puppeteer... you know, all those things that make one an artist. You may know him for his art direction of Pee-Wee's Playhouse, or perhaps for his fast becoming signature text over landscape reproduction works that have been part of an amazing monograph edited by Todd Oldham.

Wayne White has been one of our favorites for years, and just after featuring him in our June 2012 issue, we were very excited to see that White was going to create artwork specifically to introduce our Adult Swim content in the July 2012 special Adult Swim issue. And because we are in a giving mood, we wanted to share White's painting with you today...
