Mud, Adrenaline And More Mud

About this Poster

I'm kind of fascinated by CX. It's a great spectator sport. I don't think I could take part myself as it's so tough - but the mud, the atmosphere and the convivial atmosphere at CX races make it fantastic to watch. I was inspired by the sight of all these cyclists struggling up a muddy hill. Some were on their bikes, some were carrying their bikes, and some were sliding all over the place. And if you screen print red over turquoise you get a great mud colour.

Brown For Cyclocross

It's screen-printed by hand. I started off with the turquoise blue layer and then overprinted red, so some areas are red, some are blue and where red covers blue you get brown. Which goes with my Cyclocross theme.

Interesting Rides

Yes I ride a bike. I have a Brompton for commuting and an Eddy Merckx 80s road bike for more interesting rides. I've been known to stare at my bike for inspiration, yes.
