    Wow. This is amazing. Very cool.
    I have to insert my 2-cents worth from the get-go; I think he was misdiagnosed. I think he's on the autism spectrum, and the dementia came later. I mean, who doesn't live in the past when they're 112? You'll see what I mean when you read the article.
    The funny thing is, this guy is 3X my age, diagnosis'd with-very bad stuff, and STILL does more art and makes more $ than I do!!!!

    I have a cartoon on my fridge. It shows a mother, son and dr. in the dr's ofc. The dr says, "I said artistic, not autistic. And the mother responds, "I know, but isn't there something you can do?"

    Wow. Cool stuff.

    Although, his art is probably hot because of his advanced age. You know, the artwork always increases in value once an artist dies. lol
