Lyrics Degree ... Dready Vespa with people ...



                       Dready Lyrics Degree - 44x11 Limited Edition Print

i wanted to draw another version of a classic Vespa, from the front this time; is just a t'ing, something swirling around inside my head.

then i had an idea of how to populate the scene with a long legged girl, leaning against the bike and a doood ... in a moment.

in this neck of the woods, the world from which I come, when you can chat or chat up is said that you have a 'lyrics degree', you can give the girl them lyrics or give the bwoy them message ... so doood is chatting to a girl, and she, leaning on a Vespa, is chatting to him, her body position is open, he's relaxed and the dog, the dog looks on ...

i wanted length in the image and I wanted simplicity ... a ray of sunlight through the trees of my mind filters through and illuminates 3 flowers; I like those flowers and they kinda represent the nature that is not in the image because all that grayness represents the city (and makes the colours of the important things pop!)

Lyrics!

Food and Wine and Dready



                        Dready Art Wine Glass and Plate of Green - Limited Edition Print 60x40

i like food, like to cook ...

is kinda a t'ing with west indian men that they know how to cook; that yu granny did teach yu how fi bwoil up a stiff stiff dumplin' - actually I think it was miss mirriam taught me how to roll and kneed and press a dumplin till it was tight and how to cook a brown stew chicken ...

and i like the way wine goes with food.

but ya know, I also do art.

and a few years ago, well, a food and wine festival asked me to do a dready art logo for their inaugural event at a new venue and this was the art for it ...

and am still selling prints of it today ... an' it's big, 5 foot by 3.5 feet big - it fills up a wall with green and cool ...

with envy ...

Dready Art Honda 50 ...



                          Dready Honda 50/Trustafarians 2014 - Limited Edition Print 20x30

so, when i was a small small bwoy there were Honda 50's all over the place in Jamaica, they and ford escort were like the peoples transport … well that and bicycle which you would ride with 'skeng foot' …

Neathersole the gardner had a honda 50 and he used to let me ride on the back round the garden …

… an affinity; emotional, visual etc … you know. Anyhow, they are very very retro cool ...

the idea behind the original dready art 'Vespafari' when I drew it was going to be to draw the honda 50, but I ended up drawing a Vespa instead … because why, 'cause they're also very very cool and the name, Vespafari - you just can't do that with Honda 50!

so, anyhow, the point is I been dying to draw this image for ages ...

coolness all 'round …
