**Castle was an amazing "raw" artist. Mr. Trusky was too modest to post the
link to the exhibit:
http://www.lili.org/icb/mia-castle2.htm
Which shows some of the setup process.

Or his interesting article:
http://www.rawvision.com/back/castle/castle.html

Castle's artworks and "artist's books" are truly authentic, with no artifice
and no preconceptions....the kind of impulse that makes children's art so
appealing if they have not been subjected to concepts of "right" and "wrong"
ways of making art.
