Henry Darger

I'm officially finished Uni forever and I cant stop listening to posi hip hop. Also, here's a screenprint I did of Henry Darger as a part of my current body of work on recluses. Henry became famous for his posthumously-discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called  In the Realms of the Unreal which includes The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is Known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinian War Storm Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion, and extends over 15 immense, densely-typed volumes. The text is accompanied by three bound volumes of several hundred illustrations, scroll-like watercolor paintings on paper, the work of six decades, derived from magazines and coloring books. In addition, Darger wrote an eight volume, 5,084-page autobiography, The History of my Life; a 10-year daily weather journal; assorted diaries; and a second work of fiction, provisionally titled Crazy House, of over 10,000 handwritten pages. He also went through a lengthy phase of feeling compelled to make strange noises which irritated others.
