Henry Darger

 A friend of mine just recently reminded me of Henry Darger, the outsider artist.  He worked as a custodian in my home town, Chicago.  He kept to himself and dedicated all of his free time to writing and drawing his stories about "The Vivian Girls," all of which were discovered after his death in 1973.  In 2004, they created a documentary about of his life and art titled The Realms of the Unreal.  I was able to find this wild story on youtube.
