"Years ago, Christopher Gutierrez impulsively quit his job to embark on a self-imposed journey of poverty and romantic idealism. He wrote some books and traveled around the world, begging people to buy his art. A terminally fluctuating bank account and an extreme lack of security provide for great desperation.
