Adolf Wolfi (Swiss, 1864-1930)
Wolfi created all of his art, including thousands of pages of cryptic illustrated manuscripts, while institutionalized at a mental asylum in Switzerland. In 1890, at age 26, Wolfi was imprisoned for attempting to molest two young girls; he spent the rest of his life at the asylum composing music, drawing, and re-writing his own personal history in fictional form.
Like Henry Darger or Joseph Cornell, Wolfi was an outsider artist whose mysterious work defies categorization. In his untitled work of 1912 (top), Wolfi includes musical notes of his own invented musical language - he would even play this music on a paper trumpet while at the asylum.
Man oh Mandarin, that’s a great trilogy.

I’ve always loved space and the planets. I’ve seen a few “human planets” sets done by other artists (I saw one in particular that inspired me to start this one but I lost the link) and most of them are pretty literal in the human department. I wanted to try making something more androgynous and godlike.
The colors are all based off the planets’ true colors, and the designs are a mix of the names’ mythos and Holst’s “The Planets” suite. They get progressively less human the further they are from the Sun, which I thought was fun. :) Enjoy!! Pluto included.
LOOK AT PLUTO well actually look at all of them because holy goddamn, woman
