Wayne White is an American artist and cartoonist and best known for his illustrations in the New York Times and the Village Voice. What’s more is that he’s also responsible for the designing some of the puppets on Pee Wee’s Playhouse and its set.

White’s current passion are his word paintings. He takes cheaply-made, mass-produced lithographs the likes of which are found in thrift and secondhand stores and paints cheeky words and phrases over them in stylized 3D lettering drawing comparisons Edward Ruscha.

Some of my favorites:

“Aw Cmon”.

“Boo Fuckin Hoo”.

“Maybe Now I’ll Get the Respect I So Richly Deserve”.

“So, It Looks Like You Just Guessed With This One”.
