STARTING BADLY

Please note that unfortunately, I am not my Instagram account. I’m not as functional as I may appear, which is why it can take me a while to reply to comments, messages, emails etc.

There’s very little on this site at the moment, but it will eventually be home to my outsider-type art.

*****

I am a 57-year-old art and literature-loving schizo (he/him): a severely mood disordered, psychotic former rough sleeper who lives in Earls Court Schizoland, London.

I have an impressive homelessness portfolio, including doorways, hostels, B&Bs, squats, abandoned factories, disused warehouses and road traffic islands (seriously).

I have one O Level (Geography, Grade C).

Obligatory idées fixes include Neasden, and outsider bijouterie.

Please note I’m going to punch the next person on social media who calls me a hipster: apart from being 57, I have a proud industrial working-class heritage. One of my favourite accounts on Instagram is @blackcountrytype.
