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.

Today, I got up very early to go to my local supermarket which I rarely shop at. I left at 7:30AM. I came back at about 8:30AM. While there I was disheartened to find that there were no giant bags of kettle popcorn as there were on previous rare visits. Oh, no! I hope they haven’t stopped selling it!
The rest of the day I worried about whether or not I should go to the Baltimore Book Festival despite the bad weather outside. I wanted to know how my zine looked amongst the other artists book. But then again who knows maybe it looked to amateurish to be up in the tent with the other artists books. Maybe it was hidden underneath the table or trashed. My fear began to feel overwhelming. I decided not to go, but to stay at home curled up in the fetal position.
Today, I’m wearing a pink shirt with a ribbon tie around the neckline, blue jeans and red flip flops.
