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.

The above is an oil pastel I did for the Wetcanvas oil pastel forum. Hey, I just realized that this is my third Sunday in a row of completing an oil pastel! I recall reading somewhere that if you keep something up for six weeks it becomes a habit.
I feel sad to write this but it looks like I won’t be submitting any work for the School 33 (In)Visible Silence Show curated by African American artist Sanford Biggers. My main reason for not submitting anything is because Biggers will be making studio visits to the artists whose work is selected for the show. I live in an apartment the size of a postage stamp and cannot afford to own or rent separate studio space. My paintings for the most part are completed while sitting on the kitchen floor. I’m sure a big time artist like Biggers would prefer to work with artists who have actual real studio space like I’m sure he does. Also the exhibition seems to be geared towards installation work. I don’t know much about installation work, I’m a painter....
On an up note. I’m nearly finished writing my zine!
This evening I’m wearing a blue striped t-shirt with blue shorts. The shoes I’m wearing are bright blue plastic flip flops.
