Louis Wain and the Evolution of Schizophrenia

the ontological evolution of schizophrenia

He was real good at drawing cats.
He developed mental illness later in life.
That's when he became real good at drawing schizophrenia.

see the parallels to 'visionary art' created by DMT-induced Alex Grey:

There is a continuum of personality characteristics and experiences ranging from normal dissociative, imaginative states to more extreme states related to psychosis and in particular, schizophrenia.

"There is no try; only do or do not." Or not.
