I’m going to be making more large paintings.
Marfa One was 48″x48″. These new ones will be half those dimensions i.e. 24″x24″.
India Ink & acrylic on canvas. Maybe some pencil as well.
I’m calling these “The George Series”. George is a nice name. A friend of mine used to have a lovely dog named George etc.

Keeping them simple, basic and raw. Not unlike my business-card cartoons or my Moleskines. Cartoons dancing with abstract etc. Social. Existential. Lyrical. The same philosophy behind them etc.
This is going to be very cool…

Isn’t 24×24 a quarter the size of 48×48? (not half)
D’oh…! You’re right. I meant “dimensions”, not “size”. Well spotted. Fixed.
