this is a PRE-APOCALYPTIC DOCUMENT for a post-industrial, peak-information age, chaos world. (*Art. *Photography. *Writings. *Weird Esoteric Knowledge): I'm a waking dreamer with my two feet firmly grounded in a sense of history and tradition. I'm a frustrated outsider always in love with something just out of reach while always trying to remain fresh and alive. These primal urges that drive me help in celebrating my humanity in this silly wanderlust circus called life that detours to the unknown. Remember to show your support for the artist.

Henry Darger Grave: artist, protector of children.
Henry Joseph Darger, Jr. (April 12, 1892 – April 13, 1973) was a reclusive American writer and artist who worked as a custodian in Chicago, Illinois. He has become famous for his posthumously discovered 15,145-page, single-spaced fantasy manuscript called 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, along with several hundred drawings and watercolor paintings illustrating the story. The visual subject matter of his work ranges from idyllic scenes in Edwardian interiors and tranquil flowered landscapes populated by children and fantastic creatures, to scenes of horrific terror and carnage depicting young children being tortured and massacred. Much of his artwork is mixed media with collage elements. Darger’s artwork has become one of the most celebrated examples of outsider art.
