Oh and "nonfiction artist" is a great description.

There's this one picture with the article in the main link, which unfortunately is a little light on specifics regarding the piece.

Some friends of mine at the DC hackerspace went out and visited this a few months ago while it was still hush hush. I missed it because I slept in. I have a feeling my regret will only grow.

I looked to see what Hahn "The Radioactive Boy Scout" had been up to: stealing smoke detectors. Sounds like a radiation junky. Are those lesions really from radiation exposure?

If I recall correctly, Hahn was addicted to meth and this caused the lesions.
