more than one way to skin a cat ... different styles of the same dready
Sun Bums #2 - Limited Edition Print 44x14
so there are now several sets of characters moving through dready art simultaneously ...
there are the two trustafarians, in this same austin van in a post below, and then these two 'hipsters' trolling through life and love and the pursuit of happiness. my dooood has now grown a little goatee beard and longer hair ...
somebody told me yesterday that i need something more than just pretty pictures to help people glom on to the idea of the pretty pictures ... he meant more of a 'slogan' or a repartee for each piece of art ...
i said, that it was these ideas that i wanted to impart along with the art:
'I'm just a bit of a hippie artist at heart, who believes that the ultimate goal in life is to live happily and, I suppose, that by buying into the art you're sharing some of that joy.'
'dready art is a 100% caribbean product: we live here and are from here, our children were born here, I draw it here (mostly, cause sometimes I draw it when I'm travelling!). So despite what has become the kind of global reach of dready art, we try to think of ourselves as a little Caribbean company just doing our thing.’
