I wanted to do something that was an homage to BikeDC, a wonderful community of people, and that would appeal to cyclists nationwide as well. I also liked the idea of doing a fun parody of heraldry and coats of arms, a very old construct, updated.
I am an illustrator and graphic designer, former technical theater employee, wife of a tall man, dual terrier owner, coffeeneur, food and drinks enjoyer, Tweeter in search of the right hashtag, quilter and bespoke cross-stitcher, pro-Oxford comma cursive correspondent, and compulsive Pilot Precise V5 pen and Sharpie purchaser. I like to draw things and I like it even more when people pay me to do it.
It’s got a little bit of something for every cyclist with a nod The Rules and BikeDC. And I drew it with a Sharpie.
I don’t know if it was THE BEST idea, but I sure was motivated to make it up Capitol Hill at the end of a long ride by the promise of a chocolate chip cookie from Peregrine.
