Ever Dance with the Devil in the Pale Moonlight?

About this Poster

The spirit of my print is based on weekly east side social rides here in Austin. I wanted to give a lowbrow concept a “pinkies up” approach by taking a fiendish evil character, and representing him with a playful grace.

The art style came from my misconstrued memory of being forced to watch a theatrical performance of Faust back in elementary school. It was a no-brainer to name it after a Joker quote from the 1989 Batman movie.

Back Story

What Would Satan Ride?

I doodled the original concepts on a piece of printer paper one afternoon and just rolled from there. Originally, I had him riding a bike made of bones and skulls, but thankfully swapped it for a value brand beach cruiser — because of course that’s what the devil would ride.

The Ol' Exploding Head Routine

I kept the colors minimal so my good friend, and master printer, Dan Grissom’s head didn’t explode while registering everything. From what Dan tells me, registering the Texas flag in the spokes was the most annoying part.

Skids Are For Kids

Riding is a great way to clear your mind and just have fun, but there’s such a mess of traffic in Austin that it’s pretty much faster than driving. I ride a commuter with coaster brakes and frequently throw skid stops, just like the kid in Free Willy.
