"Many of the houses that interior designers show me look more like hotels than homes. And that’s because there is often nothing personal about them: a designer created them and the owners haven’t managed to add those personal layers that real homes need:decorative things, vases, sculptures, children’s drawings, hats, bicycles…"the stuff of life" as I like to call it."

Looking back, Pee-wee’s Playhouse was some crazy shit.
In Gary Panter’s words, “For the Pee Wee sets we try to put the viewer in a three-dimensional collage of American kitsch and painting styles of many eras. Though the sets are very chaotic there are really many composed visual elements; color, texture, scale and material. We wanted to create a place where there are great objects and shape compositions everywhere the camera might point. We needed to make a place that would have room for the cast and crew to do their jobs and was exciting to be in.”
