Armour

Personality is armour. Artists- volatile and sensitive individuals whose work involves much exposure to public gaze- often develop particularly baroque personalities. This really isn't surprising.

Consider Bob Dylan. I think, from all I've been reading lately, that he's actually quite a nice, shy, ordinary little guy at heart. It's a measure of the fragility of the man that the personality he projects is so monstrous.
