Great Great Great and OK OK OK is a diptych of drawings inspired by positive psychology, the study of maximizing happiness. Happiness requires both optimism and acceptance—in other words, the capacity to respond to situations with "Great!" or "Okay." This diptych is made with glitter and neon pens, to reference discount store culture and the immediacy of modest ambitions.
