The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

Once again the poster I did for the Sowebo Arts Festival will be on display in an art gallery instead of at the Charles . I’m not sure how I should take this. This is the second year in a row my artwork will be on display in the Angelfall Studios in Remington. It will be there up until May 29th. I’m not sure what the selection process is. I don’t know if someone from the gallery shows up at Scotty Stevenson’s studio and selects the posters they want or if Scotty picks them out. I know I should feel honored that my poster will be in an art gallery but let’s face it more people visit the movie theater than go to an art gallery.
There were a lot of great posters submitted this year by extremely talented artists. Hopefully, the poster I made will sell. If it doesn’t sell that’s OK with me. However, I’m very hopeful that it will sell. The poster will be auctioned off on June 20th. I don’t think I’ll be making it over to the auction. If there I imagine my stomach would be doing flip flops wondering if the poster will sell or not. Also I don’t want to know how much it sells for. For all I know my poster last year could have been a hard sell or sold for only twenty six cents. If either of these were the case I simply do not want to know.
