In one round of Ozzy and Drix, a beatnik guy was up to tricks. A mean cholesterol sublime, he dressed in black and spoke in rhyme. He zeroed in on Hector's heart so he could get an early start to make his great "disasterpiece," of which he'd name it "Heart Disease." That is an awesomely written entry. And maybe some of it was taken straight from the show. It's still awesome.

So, shouldn't we make a difference between Evil Artist and Eccentric Artist? There are plenty of artists in both fiction and real life, who are certainly nuts, but don't qualify as evil in any way.

In the real life section: Isn't continuing an interview after getting shot with an air rifle possibly an act of badassery, rather than insanity? (I realize the two are difficult to distinguish at times).

I desperately don't want to overuse or misuse this trope, but I want to say that's Crazy Awesome (it wouldn't be utterly badass without it being also utterly nuts).

You people forgot Hannibal Lector, how could you?! I also don't see Sideshow Bob on the list. Hannibal draws European cityscapes from memory in prison, Bob constructs miniature models of the Westminster Abbey from prison. The real world examples section is also sadly lacking. Caravaggio was a raging drunk who killed a man. John Wayne Gacy, better known as a serial killer, also painted horrible images of clowns, dwarfs from Snow White, and a "sex skull." Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light, is fucking nuts. He has the unfortunate habit of ritual territory marking through urination, and he once got drunk at a Siegfried and Roy show and started screaming "Codpiece! Codpiece!" Bob Ross was obviously psycho too, look at how he always laughs sadistically when he whacks his brush against the easel leg to clean it. There are way too many real world examples to name, so I will stop there. more fictional examples: Donnie Darko Dr. Terwilliger Edward Sissorhands (harmless but crazy enough to lock himself in a house and create the same statue of the same woman over and over for all eternity.) Jack Torrance from The Shining Luna Lovegood (another harmless one.) Devi from Johnny the Homicidal Maniac Squee from Squee Homsar

Mudusa. Can we add Gorgons? I mean they turn people to stone.
