I saw some of these in a comic compilation, and thought they were strange and wonderful. It helped that the artist had initials to represent him, and his bio was a mysterious P.O. Box address. I thought to myself, what a cryptic old man, spending his life as a janitor and creating thousands of comics in his tiny little shack, never to be discovered until his death. Then I looked him up, and Wikipedia told me he’s a noise musician who went to Mass Art, and Google images said he was a handsome young dude with a beard. So long, dreams of a sad and lonely artist. I guess it doesn’t take much away from the outsider art coolness of the work.
