In this episode, Ed Piskor and Jim Rugg take us through the book Daniel Johnston, which is full of his vibrant and incredibly imaginative drawings.
The book also includes an interview with Johnston and contributions from Jad Fair, Philippe Vergne, and Harvey Pekar.
I was a fan of Johnston's music for a long time before I really looked into his drawings. Once I learned more about Johnston's body of visual artwork, I was thrilled to see the ways he expressed himself through the medium of drawing. I love Johnston's use of colored markers and all of the unique characters that live in the world of his drawings.
From one look at his work, you'll see how Johnston's originality and rich inner world poured directly out of his brain and onto each page of this book.
