When I first saw Freaks, Schlitzie was the one performer who mesmerized me the most. Say what you will about the treatment of these people, but they were ostensibly well cared for and lived longer, better lives than had they been on their own. Schlitzie’s story may seem tragic on its face, but he lived a good long time.
The entire month, I will be selling these sketch cards individually for 5 bucks, or as a theme set (7 cards total) for 25. If you want one, let me know, asap via email or other means. At the end of the week, I’ll post the set on my store.
