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!
