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 picture is one of two I completed this week. It’s my attempt at a Sci-fi like theme. It’s 11x14 acrylic on bristol board. I haven't named it yet. All the work I’m doing now as I’ve probably written before will either be slated for eBay in the fall or a local art show.
Today, is Friday the 13th. Bwahahhahaha! Well, I've got that out of the way. Back to the usual format of this blog....
The bus and light rail were on time. However, we had the anal retentive bus driver again. I noticed that she had a knitted or crocheted Mickey & Minnie Mouse hanging from the fare box in a clear plastic bag. I don’t know if they were possibly gifts for her grandchildren or something left behind by a passenger?
It turns out yesterday that I did feel out it without my blankey ‘er walkman. Since the age of twelve I’ve always carried a walkman with me. Without it I feel naked. You see, “I just can’t live without my radio.”
On the art front: In total I have completed four new paintings this month. I’ll post them as soon as I scan them. Also, I’ve completed and sent out two mail art pieces. Sorry, I didn’t scan the mail art before I sent it out. The reason is that usually after you send out mail art the person/group you sent it to posts it to their web site.
Recently, I got another e-mail from Gary Kachadourian. School 33 is having a call for entries for an upcoming show they’re doing on Invisibility. I believe the show takes place during Black History month and the curator is an African American artist. Entries for the show have to be in by mid-September. I’m seriously debating about this one. I’ve never been part of a show at School 33. The one thing holding me back is that they want slides of your work. As I’ve written before I’m a very 21st century artist. The vast majority of examples of my work are in jpeg format. However, a while ago I recall hearing about an on line company that converts jpeg files into slides. I would like to use there service. That is if I can find the name of the company and whether or not they are any good.
As I write this I’m wearing a blue daisy waffle print short sleeve blouse. I got it from Walmart. Also I’m wearing jeans and tennis shoes. I’m sure you probably know where I bought my shoes from...
