dready s equal opportunity

Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready Dready2BDiver2BGirl2Bin2Bblue2B36x13

        dready diver girl – 36×13 – limited edition print on canvas

one of the very first dready s drawn was that of the diver, it was one of the first post cards, one of the first tshirts and it was in the very first group show i was part of …

historically, as simple as this dready seems, it s first iteration was an evolution: the dready on which this is based ‘diver on blue’ was the first dready where the character wasn’t looking out of the image at the viewer; one was drawn to the fish’s eye instead – it changed how i thought about portraying dreadys and i did think about it and even drew versions where the character was looking outward.

now, there’s a female version … and she’s every bit as cool.

girl power!
