The folks from Cap City Cyclocross approached me to make a poster for their State Championships this year. The direction was pretty simple, “Do whatever you want, as long as you can work Ohio in (I drew the stem face-plate in the shape of Ohio) & include our tag-lines – “PMA, No Jerks!”. I think somewhere in our discussion, they said they wanted something bold & graphic, & black & white. Right in my wheelhouse!
I feel like so many bike racing posters are so stiff & traditional that I wanted to go in a different direction. This decision was a lot easier to make simply because it seems like the Cap City crew are really fun folks & have the right idea when it comes to bike racing: race hard, show your fellow competitors respect on the field, & have fun! This project was super fun to work on. So fun, in fact, that I knocked out two different versions. The Yin & Yang, Dark-Side & Light-Side. If you like these pieces, please consider sharing this post with your friends. Thanks!
