The hex key is both the pen and sword of the cyclist. With this tool they wield the power to conquer any foe, from a loose saddle to a 15% climb grade. Enemies beware!
Screenprinting and letterpress are my jam. When I'm not printing gory hex keys, my preferred subject matter includes: vintage game shows, Sheryl Crow, soccer, fast horses, slow horses, scribbles, cute girls, slab serifs, and an occasional minimalist barf pattern.
Creating this poster followed a pretty standard timeline: started with sketches on paper, moved it to the computer, and built it in Adobe Creative Suite. I print all my posters by hand, which took two lovely afternoons at the Hamilton Ink Spot.
My rides are generally short commutes to and from school or work, but I do love to get out an take advantage of the Grand Rounds here in Minneapolis. And riding aimlessly is best way to explore a new city!
It's edgy! It celebrates the unsung hero of cycling! And it leaves a lot of room for implied narrative!
