Dark Inkwell (Phrenology)


An open edition signed print.

These are supposed to resemble notebook covers. The text is all filched from my notebooks, appointments, colour specs etc. I loved Basquiat’s early Warhol collaborations. But what did Andy think when he saw a nice logo he’d drawn covered in hip street language?  “Er, very nice…you’ve actually drawn over everything… But. That’s. Fine.”  They look nice as T-shirts as well. What’s the point of wearing a T-shirt everybody understands?

This is a painting I made of a phrenology bust. I really like the nutty charm of it and there are so many variations of these Victorian cranial maps. They partly inspired me to put lettering on pictures. I can’t remember where Dark Inkwell came from. Could it have been a character or yet another fantasy band?
