dready art 'the ferry crossing' ...



                          dready s 'the ferry crossing' - image

i spent half of most of my teenage holidays, from school, in belize - and at least one visit a year till I was a big big man ...

all in all 30 years in and out, till my father died.

Although he died in Guatemala i always travelled to him through Belize, 'cause I liked to stop and see the place before going on; I liked to fly over it in the small tropic air plane, on way to flores de peten, and look down on the places i had grown in.

belize is ingrained in me ...

a few hand-crank ferry's still exist and they're a fond memory ... so when I was doing this drawing about journeys i incorporated the ferry crossing at spanish lookout into an image, but stuck a padmini taxi into it, changing the realities of the idea altogether.

in my head though is still belize.

peace my brali ...


dready s the journey ...


                       dready 'scenes from the journey' - image

so am still drawing this idea for a series of images that make up two peoples journey toward one another ...

it's incorporating feelings and images from all over the place, moments in life and movement ... is about love and haste toward one another.

peace ...




dready london town


                          dready art's London Town - limited edition print - 56x16

i like london ...

i first saw it when i was 8, a little boy come to buy school uniforms and t'ing ... it was big and noisy; bigger than kingston yes, but the noise was different, less music more haste, less the smell of cooking but more food ... i'd already been to miami, to mexico city, to toronto ... but the haste in london seemed constant to my little ness.

then i was gone back to the americas and i never visited london again, after i left boarding school at 12, till i was in my 30's ...

it has charmed me since then; it is a great vibrant city that retains its village feel (ish) despite its sprawling untidy-ness.

ites.
