When I was a young dread-I growing up, we used to play a game, called ‘beatle bug and bash bash’, when we traveled the long and winding road from Kingston to country, on our way to visit grandparents on the farm – the idea being to look out for volkswagens on the road.
that long and winding road!
We also played a game called ‘mile post’ the gist of which I’m sure you get …
I can truly imagine a cool ‘country’ dready driving a bash bash bus out past yallahs to white horses, where everybody surfs … then and now; only now is bigger!
ride natty ride!
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.
