About this Poster

In a culture that glorifies new and improved, it's hard to really make the bike much better than it has always been. It's a growth milestone for our children, it's something we'll always remember how to do. It's a present nostalgia, a connection to the past, something that almost every human agrees is tried and true.

Back Story

If At First You Don't Succeed...

Originally I tried to screen print it myself with one color to save some money. Because I hadn't printed in two years, I was rusty and unhappy with the results. With two days left before the deadline, I called on Studio on Fire to help me out. If it weren't for my failure in the print shop, I wouldn't have chosen to letterpress and to separate the piece into a two-tone design. And to me, that execution is what it should have been all along.

Riding Makes Everything Better

Biking has become an integral part of my sanity as a freelancer. Whenever I feel like throwing my computer or sketchbook across the room, I go for a ride and everything is better. And sometimes I even get a good idea or two out of the time away from the project.

Simply Amazing

What inspires me? Being alive and able to make anything at all. That's pretty amazing.
