I’ve come a long way just to see you

Daniel Johnston

 

A screen-printed book of Daniel Johnston’s drawings put into play some of his favorite themes—superheroes fighting evil embodied by hordes of freaks, voluptuous temptresses, and Satan himself. This unflinchingly dualistic mythology betrays an obsessional knowledge of Christian, historical and pop culture references of the schizophrenic American way of life that Johnston seems to observe as an eternal outsider.
