dready started out very simply. It was dready characters on coloured backgrounds ... often just off white ... very faux primitive - I say faux because I'm not a primitive or an intuitive
the idea was the creation of post cards and T shirt images for the caribbean. dready was conceived as art on a shirt ... art that represented a caribbean or west indian cliche in a humorous way ... something that would make tourists smile and want to take one home.
the image on the left was called Bashment. I first formally drew Bashment in feb 1998 and called it 'dready jam' ... I love the character 3rd from left and the way 'she' is standing ...
it's funny how much 'emotion' you can convey in a stick figure just by a tilt of the head or the position of an arm.
