two of the things in life that i can always remember liking; steppenwolf and bikes … neathersole, the gardner, introduced me to his honda 50 when I was just a ‘liccle yute’! i used to ride on the back or sometimes on the front and hold the handle bars with him … the honda 50’s not much of a bike, but for a 5 year old it was very cool
feel the motor running!
my older sister introduced me to steppenwolf …
and so this is what nurture vs nature is all about … bob marley on one teat, john kay and magic carpet ride on the other.
anyhow, the other day a friend introduced me, by phone, to the guys from full throttle saloon (check them out at www.fullthrottlesaloon.com … i ain’t seen it but i hear the tv show rocks as much as the bar) and asked me to do a pitch for mike ballard and his girl … attached is the concept.
dready likes to ride, i ride, not much, but when i do i ride happy … me (and dready) we used to work sheep by 650 honda in the backwoods of new mexico and we’ve been 130 miles per hour on a race rigged suzuki katana … the suzuki was fast, but then so was that particular life.
blouse and skirt!
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.
