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 ...

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.
