dready orlebar brown custom shorts



                  jr in a pair of custom dready orlebar brown shorts with dreadys aston martin db5 with james bond on them


                   his wife asked me to do set it up for her.


                 love the blue ...


blue-ness ...





dready ... remarque-able

                        dready art 'morning ride, with princesses' - 36x13 - remarque on canvas

so, there's this halfway point between getting yourself a fully commissioned dready and just buying a limited edition print ... and it's the remarque of a print series, in which I add some personal touches of you to an existing dready.

the idea is that I don't have to come up with a new idea, don't have to think about it or research it or create the whole background to the idea ... this is a good example in which I added two girls, in princess dresses to dready's 'morning ride'

special-ness ...

dready ... an optimist



                        dready art 'the girl, optimist' - 20x24 - limited edition HD archival pigment print

my son was saying, last week, how he missed sailing - their (my son and daughter's) mother and grandfather had been very keen sailors: and so, when they were small they, my son and daughter, went for sailing lessons - they hated the coach at the sailing club, he grated on them, and so they didn't enjoy sailing in that context and so quit the lessons, but they enjoyed sailing for the vibe of it, they enjoyed days out with their grandfather on his boat ...

i never went sailing till I was in my 20's, in miami; I'd been boating earlier, fishing from an early age, but not sailing  ... my peoples were farmers and ranchers, people of the horse and the cow ... my own father never learned to swim till he was 40 ... i knew how to drive tractors and milk cows and ride horse from a yute, not to trim sails and tack and jibe!

but we grow old ever learning new things; sailing, because of the people now in it, has become part of my life, occasional sailing that is, as a passenger, as ballast, as a lounger upon the deck, not as crew ... but i do like the vibe of it, man, the calm, the quiet, the loll and roll (when it's not making me seasick!!) ...

the other day, someone came and asked me if I would do a dready of her son sailing his optimist; he was off to the world championships in italy on lake garda and then off to boarding school and she thought that it would be a nice present for him to take on his new journey - an original dready having a kinda large price tag for a boy turning 11, I said if she'd allow me to use the dready I drew as the basis for a print series I'd do it for just the price of a print ... she said yes ...

and so I did ... two versions ... boy and girl

dready and the light blue sea




                   the colour blue ... April 2019 ... photo by daniel

beyond the railing the sea is blue ...

I am not a thalassophile but how inviting is the sea on a day like this ... imagine the hot sun on skin damp with salt and water, the coarse of sand on foot bottom, the lap and tug of water as it ebbs and flows ...


                a different blue ... may 5th 2019 ... cayman kai

and then from mottled shade, different blues, green tinges ...

the inspiration of blues in nature ...

beauty ... zeeeeeen ....

dready - waiting on my latte ...



                              dready art - waiting on my latte - bookmark idea

I'd done the Burr and Co christmas card last christmas and we'd had discussions about bookmarks and t'ing - but it was one of those jobs that just didn't progress to an end; which is a pity because the bookmarks work well.



this happens from time to time, you work through ideas with people that just don't have an end result to them ... and there's nothing wrong with that, but you make the clients invest in your time.



                            dready art - rocking horse and bunny slippers


the minute I saw the rocking horse in the client's space this idea began gelling in my mind, this is how I saw it, the business woman letting her hair down ... but when the client saw the rocking horse they saw it with two businessmen in suits and bowler hats, using it like kids and so the points of view clashed and the job didn't progress to a fruition ...


                       dready art, from your friends

although the kimpton uses dready bookmarks and dready art as amenities - one of the front of house managers came and asked me for a special amenities card but in the end they just decided to use the bookmarks as a way to give special guest amenities ... that said I love this.

not all that glitters is gold ...

love ...

dready ... for any wall



                     college students wall

in full disclosure this is madeleine's wall and madeleine took the photo of it ... but hers isn't the only uni or school dorm wall with dreadys on it, no it is not ...

i'm working on one right now; yute's going away to boarding school in september and his mother wanted to send something with him to remember home by ...

I went away to boarding school when I had just turned 9 ... lonely experience ... send art!

school daze ...



dready - other things in life




                 yoga mat (in case you hadn't guessed) Bliss Cayman

people talk a lot about balance in life, home work balance, work play balance ...

anyhow, exercise clears your brain doesn't it, changes the perceptions of the day, releases endorphins, takes the kinks out ...

release ...
