dready two of a kind ...



                           dready s 'a mexican afternoon' - image

the face on this dready character always reminds me of my father ... the beard, the sunglasses ... it's not, but it does.

and i was doing some searching on SM and these belizeans were talking 'bout 'mek we go a Chet' (Chetumal) ... and we used to go a Chet and eat tacitos in the corozal/consejo days, after the cayo days were done and the ranch was gone.

so 'a mexican afternoon' and then ... gun, horse, hat and 'el vaquero' ...

                     dready art s 'el vaquero' - image

and so ...

adios my yutes!

dready s the huntsman ...




                            dready art's 'out for ducks' - limited edition archival pigment print # of 99 - 18x24

there's a story, you know there is right ...

a photo of my cousin at bird bush started me thinking about a whimsical hunting pic ...

i used to live in the bush and when i was there i, we used to hunt; but that was a long time ago in another place, and without a need/want to hunt for food (this is a relative t'ing) i certainly don't hunt for sport.

bird bush, in jamaica, is a great memory for me, grandpa used to shoot - he had his own pair of custom hand made spanish guns, pretty and tooled and he kept them in a case in the chest of drawers. My first 'man' t'ing was as a tiny little yute, 5 maybe, when grandpa took me to the lodge at bird bush with him ... me one and plenty big big man, cussing and drinking and sleeping in their under pants and t shirt.

the bird boys carried me on their shoulders to the stand in the swamp 'cause I was too small to walk through the water ... what an adventure for a little bwoy.

in another long ago in some other place that I don't live no more i used to shoot skeet and trap, weekly, with stevie and curtis and mikey ...

anyhow so a photo of sam started this idea of a whimsical look at bird shooting ... and then research for another dready pushed another button and it started to come together ...

then pam and max didn't like the hat i was using, which sent me in search of another hat ... and then the beard, for a reason, the dooood's beard had to be full and bushy ... and then the name, 'out for ducks' comes from cricket - when you're bowled out on your first ball ...

see told you story ... IKR

a bird inna di hand!

dready s a walk in the country ...


                      dready art 'the walker' - image

'the journey' continues to evolve ...

how the two characters will come together in this story I haven't decided yet but am enjoying the development of the individual pieces and the stories they tell to me ...

one hot 'as rass' day, but dry and crisp, no humidity, we were walking in jamaica ... that's a pimento tree in the background ... it was a moment ... and a very nice one and so here it is kinda fleshed out into something.

peace ...
