Way back, last fall, my man Spencer from Ohio gave me a shout & asked for some art for Ohio’s Cyclocross State Championships. It was super fun project! (I got to combine art & bikes, duh!…and he basically said “Do whatever you want.”) So a few weeks ago, this package showed up from Spencer & the Crap-Shitty crew. One of their sponsors threw in a bag of coffee, & Spencer included a poster from their event & a tee-shirt with the art I made for them. So rad! Care packages from clients are the best!
It’s a little before Throwback Thursday, or Flashback Friday, or any other clever term that the kids have coined these days. I’ve got a few projects in-process at the moment that I’m not quite ready to share, so I figured I’d post up a piece that’s a bit older. Let’s go back to September of 2011. I was a selected artist for the ArtCrank show that was happening at the Interbike Tradeshow in Las Vegas that year. If you’re not a gigantic bike nerd like myself, Interbike is the US’ largest bicycle trade show. Vendors and bike shops converge in the desert to check out all the new products and talk shop.
ArtCrank is ‘A poster party for bike people’. Each art show had a bicycling-related theme that outlines the vibe of the show. Selected artists produce appox 30 prints for sale, and one artist’s proof for the show. A portion of the sale from each poster goes to a great cycling based cause. (Click ‘read more’ for images…)
