dready art … what’s your ‘type’

Dready, Dready Art and Everything Dready

a wife from oxford, england, asked me to draw this for her husband … and immediately, in minds eye, I saw the long scarf trailing behind …

there’s the bizarre story of the dancer, isadora duncan, who in 1927, got her long scarf, trailing behind her, caught in the rear wheel of her car and it strangled her …
