this very simple image has its roots in earth day 2009; dready did a series of 8 foot square flower murals for the national gallery of cayman on the construction wall around the new government office building.
power of flower
on the back of that I was asked to design some note cards for someone based on the flowers … and this was the end result of that design.
this isn’t really what you’d think of as a traditional dready … but I feel that the dreadyness of this image is in its simplicity, its whimsy …
(and the fact that i designed it!!!)
I never promised you a rose garden!
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.
