dready 'lee scratch perry rides an elephant' ...


               dready art's 'lee scratch perry rides an elephant' - image

don't ask me why, i dunno, it came to me as i fiddled with the elephant this morning ...

some days things, moods, stuff, moves you in ways that are unexpected, the whimsy comes at you from some weird direction ...

i'd been drawing scratch perry from before, had this idea about a series related to music ... but, ya know, i just didn't like where he was going - it was plain plain plain and SLP is anything but that, his beats, 'riddims' are the basis of so much of the rocksteady/reggae/dancehall of today - i kept wondering how i was going to make it pop, where the liccle bit of dreadyness was going to come from and then boooooom(!) this wildness ... and i liked it, dunno what it's an analogy of; if it is one it's totally subliminal ...

ites ...
