dready rocking it old school …

Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready

                   dready art s ‘labrish, labrish, chat, chat’ – 28×10 – image

there’s a show on at the national gallery that’s about language of culture in art, and it sparked me into action … that and i needed, wanted to do an old school dready

stick figures and cliches …

and it was nice ’cause i went full old school and hand drew the idea first and then translated it into digital and expanded and expounded … completely new and fresh and old at the same time!

text in a dready’s nothing new, use it as dialogue, as asides, as statements (of intent) … i like it …

labrish … if you look it up on google you get what i think’s a pretty poor ‘translation’ …

yes, labrishing could be translated as gossiping, but it’s more than that, and there’s no negative connotations in it – no, it is more of an extended chat ’bout stuff and t’ings – you don’t have a quick labrish – so it is better translated as maybe a ‘good chin-wagging’.

on that note i should call my mother for a quick chat ’bout …

peace and love …

talk soon …

walk good …
