big ship sailing on the ocean!

Dready, Dready Art and Everything DreadyApoise the yacht depicted in this image has just sold at auction and i’ve been secretly working away at it as a commission to the old owners.

a few days ago I showed it to a dready lova who said to me; “it’s very cool but, you know, I just really like the rustic dreadys …” And I like the rustic dreadys too …
yet, I and the person who commissioned the art, love this … I love it because I see the dreadyness in it, I see the colour, the simplicity in the intricacy; I see how, especially in the aft end I’ve created a very dready sense of Apoise.
but but but you see, for me, it also fills in a space in dready’s world … he and I look out and see this boat and although I don’t have it yet, sooner or later, dready and this boat will meet in an image. and that’s part of the point, it’s not just dready, it’s dreadyworld.
but more than just that, there was a time around 1985 (so much happening in those years they’re a bit of a blur) dready and I’d just come back from New Mexico and I was working on a 117 foot yacht anchored in the new river canal behind las olas blvd and working other boat jobs same time … I worked on boats, dready works on boats.

About Dready

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.
