dready s make me smile …



           dready art 'what now my lily' - 16x16 original on paper

i met a woman … but this is the modern world, so i met her on the internet … and she's funny and her tweets makes me smile ...

and she's getting married, and her husband's name is mad awesome …

so, she said 'do me a piece of dready art with an 'album' in it' …

once upon a time, my peoples, there were things called albums, records, look them up: they were cool and had artwork on their covers and shit … amazing, you played them, they had music on them … you played them on a record player …

and your record player mighta been a marantz!

and when i was a yute one of mummy's favourite albums, at home, and at Goshen, was Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, 'what now my love' … it would play on the stereo in that little room that had once been the great house's entrance; it would echo through the dining room to find us by the darts board, in the living room, out by the badminton court …

and the album cover looks like them, like her and the doood with the mad awesome name … well, I mean, if you give him a beard and give her a cigarette it looks like them …

and it's cool and very 'of that time when there were albums'.

and there's a dready in the dready, as if it's art on the wall, and there's a story behind it: there was a show and I did art for that show; it was at the national gallery, local artists interpretations of goya's caprichos … my capricho, #57, was called 'la filacion'/'the lineage' and was a treatise on  people of different backgrounds getting married, and i illustrated that with two very different styles of 'dready' together, obviously a couple, one fully formed, one a stick figure, looking on at the Goya in a gallery …

so that's it … a kinda their story in my story kinda thing and i like it …

(and i've used the oxford comma)

peace and love

Dready 'going to Glyndebourne' …




                    dready art's going to glyndebourne - 18x16 ...

a photograph i saw, of a couple elegantly dressed, looking tired as if dawn had found them in their party clothes reminded me of something and inspired me to draw this dready  …

glyndebourne is a typical british summer t'ing: an opera festival, near lewes, that incorporates country picnic with opera and black tie dress …

you arrive early and you can wander the grounds of the estate; perambulate 'round the lake, have a picnic ... you can bring it with you, or they'll provide one …

so you have a wander and have a picnic, if you want, and then there's some opera for a couple of hours … then the long interval, which is time for more picnic-ing or eating indoors at a choice of restaurants.

then more opera …

is a cool experience whether you re british or not, whether you like opera or not ... the dying of the light, the green of the grass, the softness of the sheep, the elegant house as back drop, the well dressed people, the freshness of the air …

coolness!
