    General CommentFound it:
    Henry Darger was was a reclusive American writer and illustrator who worked as a janitor in the Chicago area. He has become famous for his posthumously-discovered 15,143-page fantasy manuscript called "The Story of the Vivian Girls, in What is known as the Realms of the Unreal, of the Glandeco-Angelinnian War Storm, Caused by the Child Slave Rebellion," along with several hundred watercolor paintings and other drawings illustrating the story. Darger's work has become one of the most notable examples of outsider art.

    (side note: outsider art is artwork made by people with absolutely no contact to the mainstream art world and no instruction/schooling in the area.)

    In Darger's story, the Vivian Girls interact with winged creatures who normally are benevolent to them.

    For more info, visit the Wikipedia page for Henry Darger.

    Its all incredibly intruiging!

    General CommentTilly and the Wall's song 'lost girls' is about the Vivian Girls. My favorite song off the Bottom of Barrels album.
