Sun Bums – Limited Edition Print 44×14
the trustafarians be movin’ …
the continuing saga of their lives in cool vehicles … not sure why i chose modes of transportation as the ‘vehicle’ for these characters in dready art – it started with the vespa and then the smart car … it all just seemed to convey a whimsical message about who the characters were and are … and as i’ve repeatedly said i like them; i like who they are in my head.
but then the vespa didn’t start out as a vespa, it started out life in a piece of dready art as a honda 50 and evolved into a vespa … there was this guy, neathersole was his name, and he lived round by barbican and thought of himself as mr. lova lova long before shaggy had thought of it … he had air jamaica ‘lovebird’ stickers all over his bike. When I was leaving and going away to school, neathersole said to to me; ‘anytime you come back and you want to find me, jus’ come a dis corner and call mi name; people will know me.’
but then that story is not related to this one … and this one is called ‘sun bums’
