The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.

My Photo
Location: Baltimore, Maryland, United States

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.

watercolourpencil01, originally uploaded by willisgirl.

The above is a watercolour pencil drawing I did. I don't normally work with watercolour but I think that this one came out pretty good.

If you’ve come by here often....., Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you! I have redesigned the layout of this blog. OK, I didn’t do it myself. I’m not that adept at web design. But what I did do was go over to BlogSkins to pick out a new design. The one you are looking at now was designed by a 30something Hawaiian kid named Mela.

I always feel a little guilty while browsing for new skins on Blogskins because at times it seems as though the designers are high school students. Every now and then you see a comment like, “I designed this skin when I should haver been studying for my algebra exam.” Or maybe you see designs that include a place to enter your age or school activities. Seeing things like that makes me feel uncomfortable as though I’m skirting child labor laws. Luckily for me, I’ve avoided that Kathy Lee Gifford stigma by unwittingly choosing the design of a fellow 30something. I didn’t choose the new skin soley because Mela is around my age but because I liked the simple design and purple is my favourite colour. It’s just turns out that it’s an extra bonus that the person who designed it is a fellow 30something.

Today, I have on a blue shirt that has a design of white flowers on it. I also have on stone washed denim shorts and tan flip flops.
