                          Dready Honda 50/Trustafarians 2014 – Limited Edition Print 20×30

so, when i was a small small bwoy there were Honda 50’s all over the place in Jamaica, they and ford escort were like the peoples transport … well that and bicycle which you would ride with ‘skeng foot’ …

Neathersole the gardner had a honda 50 and he used to let me ride on the back round the garden …

… an affinity; emotional, visual etc … you know. Anyhow, they are very very retro cool …

the idea behind the original dready art ‘Vespafari’ when I drew it was going to be to draw the honda 50, but I ended up drawing a Vespa instead … because why, ’cause they’re also very very cool and the name, Vespafari – you just can’t do that with Honda 50!

so, anyhow, the point is I been dying to draw this image for ages …

coolness all ’round …
