Cities of You

City #49: Ganonathu (Jonathan L)

16 x 20", Gouache and Pen on Paper

One day, the pieces that make up Ganonathu started to form letters and numbers. It started with a "J", followed by an "L", then an "8". After a number of years, buildings started to form words, such as "and", "if", and "you". Decades went by and questions started to appear- "Where is my hat?", "How many cakes?” Citizens tell you to not think too much into it. Given enough time, any city will begin to ask questions, but it will be mostly nonsense. Most of the fuss comes when people start answering those questions earnestly. And who knows what pandemonium would ensue when Ganonathu accidently asks, "May I excuse myself?"
