Aaron Draplin does these small posts on his Twitter, labeled with an identifying number (like all his Tweets), and typically when someone of note passes away, he’ll mark who it’s for. It’s as if he’s dedicating a small space of the internet to this one person.
I don’t really know what to say, and in my state of mind I’m definitely not the person to write it, but it felt like I needed to say something.
This post, this space, this block of text on the internet, is for George, an amazing artist, a personal hero, and by all accounts a great man.
Thanks for reading,
