Marrus is an artist in New Orleans who gets to share wild stories populated with carriage rides and crack addicts, swing dancers and swingers, blinding beauty and burgeoning crime. Truth is stranger than fiction, and this is rarely more true than here in the City That Care Forgot. They’ve spent 25 years criss-crossing the country, selling their work at renaissance festivals, sci-fi cons, BDSM conventions and anywhere else people are bored with paintings of landscapes. But that sparkling whirlwind, working with thousands of festival-goers in every flavor of weather, driving for a week, and sleeping in the back of their car, has taken its toll. The business brain is diametrically opposed to the brain that needs space to birth these visions into the world.
