Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready racestart

doing art graphically is at once more difficult than doing it by hand and … easier – something seemingly quite simple, like the sails in the above (sailboats in the mediterranean), took me about 3 times as long as they would have doing them by hand …
and it’s a ‘big but’ on purpose … once i’ve done them digitally i never have to do them again; i can use them over and over, i can adjust their size almost instantly, their colour pretty darn quickly; I can use pieces of the art in other art and so the story goes on.
I do paint in the traditional way and draw and sketch; I like the instantaneousness of sketching … that on any old piece of paper that’s handy; the moment …
but i don’t want to be traditional i want to draw dreadys and this is how i do them.

nuff said (and big love)!
