Widely regarded as the best holiday special of all time (Cher, Oprah, Grace Jones, Frankie & Annette, Little Richard, KD Lang AND the New York Gay Men’s choir will be there to welcome you…on screen…!), nothing gets you in the winter-wonderland spirit like Pee-wee & the Playhouse gang. Bring the fam, the besties, the kids, the jaunty sweaters, the fruitcake and spiked eggnog and boost yourself onto Santa’s naughty & nice list.
Portland-based artist Jeff Brawn will be selling Pee-Wee Herman artwork at the theater from 5PM-6PM.
Jeff Brawn is a Portland based illustrator, mixed media artist and author. His commercial clients include everything from movie studios to restaurants, podcasts, musicians and breweries. His personal art has been collected by people you may have heard of (Director James Gunn, Comedians Jimmy Kimmel, Bobcat Goldthwait, Mike Myers, Dana Gould, Jeff Garlin…) and a lot more who you definitely have not (Kevin Hopkins, for instance). He’s won a few awards, but they will not be listed here because Jeff says “Awards for art are as stupid as ashtrays on motorcycles.” That statement not only shows his feelings about art awards, but also encompasses everything he knows about motorcycles. He is interested in collaborations, commissions, employment and anything else that might either be fun or put money in his ill-fed piggy bank.
