I didn't make him up!

Last class you all saw my movie which featured the art and music of Daniel Johnston.  Amy asked if I had drawn the characters, probably because they looked like the handiwork of a five-year-old.  But no, Daniel Johnston is an actual artist and musician.  This piece uses the same song that I originally had in my movie.  I was using it as a backdrop for an original narrative that I wrote, but it is used here to narrate aspects of Daniel's life.  It's not really a linear narrative, but you can see how the lyrics match the selected pictures of him and his artwork.  I hadn't seen this before I did my movie.  It works much better here.
