The brief from the client was to create a ‘cool piece of bike art’. This was an extremely open brief, which was music to my ears.
I started this project with some very rough sketches and began to illustrate the form of the gangly cyclist riding his fixie bike. I then began to work in all of the details, like clothing, accessories and the detail of the bike. Finally I dropped in the colours and the areas of half-tone. The client was very pleased with the final outcome. You can buy prints of this particular design in our shop.
