a faded blue Land Rover 90 Series II’s clattering and bouncing around farms and down country roads … the doors on the shell tops always used to end up loose and rattling … the idiosyncrasies are what make people love land rovers.
hot footin’ through the gears!
toyota and nissan taxis used to scatter in half way tree, parting like moses and the red sea for the land rover to pass, tyres humming, engine whirring, exhaust coughing from the hot footing through the gears.
The image is based on the 90 my auntie used to have, although hers didn’t have the shell top (the top seemed to fit the purpose of the art) the polo yute is fixing it up to drive, resurrecting her from the the grave …
Easy nuh supa!
There’s a club for series II’s http://www.series2club.co.uk/
Dready art is a 100% caribbean product: it was imagined here, designed here, tested here – in barbados, bvi, cayman, grenada and jamaica – we live here and are from here, our children were born here, I draw it here (mostly, cause sometimes I draw it when I’m traveling!). So despite what has become the kind of global reach of dready art we try to think of ourselves as a little caribbean company just doing our thing.
