This was a my attempt at taking the format of the comic Little Bit that I was working on earlier last fall (and have, subsequently, abandoned in the mean time) and combine the “quick” drawings I’ve done in the last couple of days. Suddenly, my obsession with repetitive markings might have a better realized purpose. The typical superficiality of the surfaces in my paintings seem to be penetrated more with the inclusion of time by applying a sequential ordering of the images. In the gutters of this comic, you can easily imagine the pools of color moving, changing. There’s suddenly a depth to be probed and I find myself wondering aloud at what’s below.
