Dready in New York

Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready img 610861f45d235

you struggle with the idea for a dready sometimes – how are you going to portray something that somebody wants in a way that works for dready art … and this, this is just half the image, but this was the key for me, this scene took an image that was feeling ordinary and changed it.

i spent quite a bit of time in new york in the late 80’s and again in the early 2000’s – spent 10 weeks in just one year: queens, upper west side, lower east against the river, travelled with yardies who had grown up in new york, saw the city, did new jersey, long island and connecticut … i’ll be straight up, I prefer London, hands down, on every level.

new york does have better bagels!

but this wasn t about me, it was about what the client liked and she likes new york, she prefers new york to london …

anyhow, i drew an awesome new york …
