    A personal goal

    K, I just read about some artist called something like henry darger or something and how he supposedly did a 15,000 page epic with drawing and that got me thinking. Maybe I should do a giant comic book that I will do one page every week until I am like 25 or something. Whadya guys think?

    There was much rejoicing in the realm of the Harvest Gods when man created the beer, light could not penetrate.

    Darger was brilliant. He was also (literally) a nut job. He worked the way he did not because he wanted to, but because he had to.
