Hello shy face x
I did go to art school for a brief time .. I assumed it was the next logical thread in the tapestry of my love for art.. what i found was the consideration of art in an institutional setting didn’t work for me.. i had problems with the conceptual nature of studying art in this way. It was after I bombed all my subjects and dropped out that i found a way to draw that worked for me. disclaimer: i have absolutely no problem with art school, and i actually pin point my inability to pass more than 1 unit the entire time i was there to my innate laziness and inability to rise before 1pm rather than on the curriculum.
As for the Henry Darger aspect, I have read that he was a bit of a recluse and i think that is where he and I are united.
