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.

This morning the bus was on time. I suppose the late bus incident was solely the result of the rainy weather. I’m a little worried about tomorrow. It seems that they (bus drivers) usually switch off on Fridays. So I will have to get to the bus stop a little earlier or walk. There is no telling when the new driver will arrive. My bus usually arrives at 5:45. I don’t know if it will be earlier than usual or late as hell tomorrow.
I didn’t watch American Idol yesterday. I’ve never watched the show before. I have no idea who won. As I understand it, it was a showdown between some woman named Fantasia whose a black teenage mother and a fat white chick named, Diana. I have no idea whose the better singer between the two. But from what I hear on talk radio Fantasia is the favorite. Don Geronimo going against the popular grain has his money on Diana winning. Also from what I hear some girl named LaToya was the better singer of the two and got voted off a couple of weeks ago. There was some kind of a big controversy over it.
Last night I worked on my polymer clay sculpture. It looks like it’s going to be a goblet. All I have to do to complete it is to smooth out the rough edges, bake it in the oven and paint it. I like working with polymer clay because it remains pliable for days and you can bake it in a regular oven. The reason for this is that polymer clay is a plastic based clay. It first came on the market in the 60’s just like my favorite paint, acrylic, which surprise is also plastic based. I feel almost like that guy who was giving advice to Dustin Hoffman's, character of Benjamin Braddock in the 60’s classic film, The Graduate. "Plastics!" , truly is the wave of the future. Heck, I’m using it in the 21st century and can not imagine making art without it.
