dready projects

so, i find myself in the midst of a project for which i have to draw about 22 individual original images and its been a very very cool challenge ...

actually the whole of the last sorta 4 months have been this wonderful drawing experience (mitigated by the stress of deadlines!) ...

anyhow I smuggled these two characters out of the 22 ... cause I liked them

dready art's - 'souljah'


                                dready 'souljah' - 10x14 - limited edition HD archival pigment print


this is a sister piece to 'the very fictitious west indian regiment's moustaches' which I'd drawn for a movember fund raiser in which I imagined what a cliche'd west indian/jamaican victorian soldier might look like ... cool of course, he'd be like sir richard burton but with a better accent and a knowledge of the word bumbaclate!

and then i wanted to say that (and especially now in this time of rememberance) that the wars, even the european wars, have never just been about lost europeans but about soldiers from all worlds ...

and more - that the whole idea of the age of 'discovery' was never just a european adventure, that others 'discovered' worlds that the europeans usurped and claimed others laid the ground work that propaganda claimed was theirs, and when the time came, others participated as sailors, as soldiers as shipsmen, shipwrights and settlers ...

dready and the colourful tree



            dready art's 'the colourful tree' - 20x26 - original commission on canvas

by lucky chance, and I say lucky because I knew what the room's wall paper would look like but not anything else really ... and so by lucky chance the colourful tree matches the other art in the room like they were meant to be!

the idea for this starts with the family portrait below and then extracting the units of the family into something of their own that kinda talks about them as a separate entity ...

colour and vibes ...

dready art ... it's a dog's life



                 dready s 'orion and the bean' - 20x26 - original commission on canvas

i liked the dogs in this pic soooo much I also gave them their own pic ...


but really it was the story of a little family that included the two dogs ... orion the frenchie (bulldog) and bean the hairy chihuahua (I think) and justin and liza ...

love ...



dready art family portraits ...

                   
                  dready art s 'mum and dad like umbrella drinks' - 32x20 - original commission on canvas

derady art projects like this are a great deal of fun, the sort of finding and developing the 'idea' of people in action ... and to find their character and style.

and the dogs, how cute are the dogs!!!!

'fambly' ...
