I forgot the name of this artist that I learned about in psychology class who suffered from schizophrenia and his work is incredible. Pic related, drawings as his schizophrenia got worse

His name was Louis Wain.
His pictures are terrifying.
This print has four additional ones, but it's smaller.

That's what my cat looks like on DMT, but that's amazing.

"Now where did I leave my pencil again? DAMMIT!"

Correction: wtf is a pencil?
#43 to #41 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
You know, that small wooden thing people draw with...

*sigh* I meant that by 2014 his Alzheimer's would be so far along he wouldn't even know what a pencil is, genius...

I reminded of my grandfather who had a stroke.
He was my best friend when I was little and then that happened. He can't remember my name that well and doesn't speak well, so he gets angry at himself over it. Every time I visit him (about 5 days a week), he cries when I have to leave.
What hurts the most though is that the last thing we talked about before it was an argument between the two of us. A petty argument that I was going to apologize for the next day.
Well, in the middle of the night, he had his stroke and managed to crawl out of bed, and into his kitchen. He was left-handed and lost all movement on that side of his body. Anyways, he managed to reach up and grab the phone. He tried dialing "911" but accidentally called speed dial #1, which was his friend who lives about 600 miles away.
Bob called the police in his town who contacted the emergency services in my town and when I woke up, my grandfather was in the hospital, nearly dead.
He couldn't speak, all that would come out of his mouth was incoherent babbling.
The only thing that made sense when he spoke was when they asked him what his name was. "Shorty," he'd say. Shorty is his nickname for me.
Even after the argument we had and the first of a series of severe strokes, I was still the first thing on his mind.
I need to go pay a visit to him now. Thanks, OP.

This is even sadder having known 2 people in the family with Alzheimer's. **** can be pretty scary, I dont wan't that

Best take care of yourself, mate. No use winding up like that down the line.

My grandmother died of Alzheimer's disease. It was really upsetting, but even funny at times. I'll just always remember that she would still smile at me and the rest of the family when we visited her at the old folk's home, but not at the staff. Almost like she still remembered.

Almost...

I feel you, got Alzheimer's running in my family too. At the moment I'm glad it's not Huntington's, because that **** is vicious.
User avatar #93 to #78 - exclamation (07/02/2013) [-]
What's Huntington's?
#121 to #93 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
You can just google it.

Degenerative brain disease that CAN cut your life in half.

But the worse part is you never know when it'll strike, like parkinson's. It's when a disease causes your brain to literally rot. You could be 70 and lived a good life and then get it, or you could get it in your 30s, in your teens even.

How do I know this? Google and an interest in hereditary illness.
#161 to #137 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
cut your life in half? yeah sure... i bet they make a deal with a shinigami...
User avatar #164 to #161 - elcreepo ONLINE (07/02/2013) [-]
It CAN. Whereas somebody who didn't have parkinsons would live to 70, like the guy below me said, a person with parkinsons can die at the age of 30 or under.
#131 to #93 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
Its a disease that cuts the extent of your life in half.
*Say you were going to live into your 70's...well with Huntington's, it puts it to dying in your late 30's/early 40's.
The only reason I know this is because in House, Thirteen (Olivia Wilde) was diagnosed with Huntington's when she was a little girl.
Did I miss anything?...

You know that having 2x Alzheimers in your family puts you on a hi-risk of going Alzheimer too?

I double posted, because you may have already forgotten about the 1st post.

#152 to #13 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]

My great grandmother had that. 			****		 Alzheimer's. When i was young i would give her a white rock for luck every time i saw her, i was only young at the time, but the last time i saw her before she died i gave her one last rock. But she just looked at me and asked who i was. My great grandfather put it in her casket so she would have luck with her. I didn't need these feels

We have brains that are unmatched in nature, minds capable of creating the first tools to escape the solar system, exploring the depths of the oceans, mapping our entire planet to the point that if you live in america, you can check out a random dude's hutt in africa just through an internet search, and yet we can't stop bickering and sweating the small stuff long enough to focus on longer lifespans and curing diseases to stop sad **** like this from happening...
User avatar #130 to #23 - unhappyspanners (07/02/2013) [-]
Longer lifespans and curing diseases sounds all well, but it could potentially lead to massive problems which we won't be able to easily fix.
User avatar #159 to #130 - epicurious (07/02/2013) [-]
True, but we'd have a lot more time to deal with those problems. lol

As harsh as it sounds, death is a necessity.
User avatar #165 to #163 - epicurious (07/03/2013) [-]
Well... it's been pretty widely accepted for 3 billion years (Except by the amoeba...), but we're awesome super monkeys, surely we can work around it...

Lost Brilliance.


That's what hurts the most.
Kinda like Nikola Tesla.

Yeah, I agree that Alzheimers isn't anything to laugh about.
