Vespafari ...

this is one of my favourite images hands down; these two dready characters have been motoring their way through my art in many fashions and the vespafari (trustafarians on vespa) is just the latest incarnation ...
is a good example of how much action and emotion you can get out of 2 dimensional art and stick figures.
peace and love!

variations on a dready theme ...

its all down to a matter of taste ya know, dis one like dat and dat one likes dis ...
despite the fact that a touch of comedy is really part of the dready art I liked the simplicity of a version of this with just the lionfish, a spliff in his mouth on a tan background, with its hint of japanese watercolour art
that piece had less to do with the sea and comedy I suppose and more to do with the fish itself and the the whimsy was very very subtle.
i loved this project though, the doing the art live and in person at Camana Bay, Cayman Islands, the complexity of doing the fish ... the fact that I wanted it to look like a lionfish but still maintain the simplicity of dready art ...
balance!

love everything!

when i was a yute we had german shepherds ... 'Napoleon Prince of Orange' was big and black, i was small and white; Josephine was his bitch ... they had a son my sista and i called busta; busta belonged to us, but i don't remember what his title was ... anyhow, mus' love dogs!
when it came time for Busta to be put down I had to do it - he couldn't walk anymore and he'd found himself under the shell of an old truck in the works yard of the ranch in belize - my father couldn't face the job.
this isn't an image of german shepherds but it is for a company called 'Must Love Dogs' ... when I was dreamin this up and i literally did just that, I saw the comedy of a very cool great dane and some very uncool yorkies ... i like how the great dane's legs come out of the image ...
so, all this and to say, i love dogs, i live with one called sam right now.
love everything!
