You might also have a problem with the use of "genius" here.

The style of some particular retarded genius, or just the generic retarded genius style that we all know and love? Is "retarded genius" a quote from American Art Review or something?

Hey do you actually know him, or just in a general sense like you know his work? Just wondering.

"Retarded genus"

Am I offended? No. I've long ago given up being offended by such idiotic verbage. It makes you look foolish and just plain not someone worth spending the time of day with. It in effect disappoints me.

From googling I see you are just copying text from somewhere else, but geeze use your head for something other than a hair farm

(and Daniel Johnston is not retarded, afaik, he has a mental illness)

secretseasons, it is an excellent example of whatever it is.

I wasn't suggesting that Daniel Johnston was retarded. But the art styles are somewhat similar.

yeah, aside from the offensively framed single link to some half-baked blog that contains about 30 drawings, this is the same stupid crap every semi-talented-ex-skateboard-kid-wannabe-artist has churned out since neckface got famous... your stupid napkin doodles are not charming or unique. everything about this sucks.

There are no "special" words. Retarded is perfectly legitimate to describe these drawings. Compositions in some are better than others. A pleasant ropey and humane feel throughout. Childlike in the best instances. Was Paul Klee considered a genius? Included laser tits which I mistook for menstruation on the right hand figure. Genius is not a special word either. Two non-special words together prepared me well for the exhibit. Some good drawing there.

It's an excellent example of an FPP that we should flag for deletion.
