City & Cyclist One

About this Poster

I'd ridden in London as a part of the strange enthusiast / courier / bike polo scene there for a number of years. I feel that led to this idea of the cyclist looking over his city as an empowered figure.
Note: This poster is a first edition print from our 2011 Interbike show.

Back Story

Nasty Halftones, Bang On

I really wanted to do a warm and textured piece after doing mostly "flat" screen-printed posters so I developed a technique with Sharpies that scanned in to Photoshop real nice. Rupert at APG Works here in Sheffield pulled the prints for me. He's a legend and managed to get all my nasty halftones to look bang on.

Bikes For Every Occasion

I've almost got a bike for all occasions, from the fixed gear hack, several variations for bike polo up to the fair-weather road bike. My love of cycling lead me to get involved with putting on London's very first ARTCRANK show back in 2010 with Chris Verbick and Laura Kim. I saw what Charles and ARTCRANK were doing in the US and couldn't believe that London didn't have that.

A Little Unique

As with most of my side projects this was a nail biter as to whether it would meet the deadline. Due to the design having a lot of real fine halftones for warmth each print is slightly different to its brothers and sisters giving each a unique quality.
