I thought it would be fun to make a print that depicted an angel delivering a bicycle from the heavens. Perhaps it's just the idea that the bike is an ideal mode of transportation that made it appeal to me, but I found the concept appropriate.
I operate under the handle Moon Light Speed. I illustrate and print all of my work by hand out of my home studio in Denver, Colorado. My experience with screen-print design is rooted in the DIY ethic originating back to making merch for crappy punk bands in high school. Most of my client work is for musicians, creating concert posters, album artwork, t-shirts and general, but I also work in many other arenas.
I chose to shy away from any major key lines on this print, which are usually the norm for my other works, and stick with using simple blocks and shapes of color.
I wanted to have fun with this poster and play around with the medium, and reach outside of my usual style.
Riding a bike gives you time to think, reflect and react. It also gives you a more intimate interaction with the scenery that you are passing through.
