Henry Darger!!!!!








I watched an amazing documentary about an artist named Henry Darger. The documenter tells how Henry was a large recluse and barely spoke to anyone. After his death, his landlord and neighbors found massive collections of art work that he had made to go along with a novel called The Story of the Vivian Girls. This novel may well be the largest novel ever written! It contains 15,154 pages of single-spaced typed. 

 You guys should go rent this dvd, its amazing!  It's called The Realms of the Unreal. 

Here is some of his art work.

  3. These are very neat. Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
