Robert Woodward is also known as Peanutbutter. He and his eponymous troupe of artists have decorated faces all over the world.  He has performed face and body painting in Bali, Tokyo, Brazil, India, Puerto Rico, Italy and France, as well as national venues like the Corcoran Museum in Washington DC and Universal Studios in Los Angeles.  He has painted full bodies for Cher, Calvin Klein, and Annie Leibowitz.  Peanutbutter was also a featured guest on Martha Stewart's television program in 2000 (before prison.;)) Robert's art and craft work, in all media, is about teasing the viewer to jump in, to look twice, to scratch a head-spot, wondering how it was done, in what sequence, and then being released, left nodding and smiling.
