i went to live in new mexico in the 1980’s and work for a guy name eugenio perez; the distances were so vast that we often flew in his cessna … I often flew his cessna, when it was airborne … I wouldn’t have wanted to fly it before, cause jah know the runway was very short, downhill and ended abruptly in a barbed wire fence!
leaving on a prop plane!
anyhow, this was about drawing a cessna ‘wonnit’ … and i had an idea to show 3 views of the plane and that the views would run off the page. i dig the end result, the perspective, the touches of colour …
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.
