About this Poster

I started out just writing down whatever came to mind when I thought of bikes, and one entry was a little kid's bike gang. Then I actually stumbled across a photo of Karen Carpenter on a motorcycle, and thought it'd be fun to do some tough women instead. It probably helps that I know a lot of tough ladies who bike.

Meet Caroline Moore

Brownsville, Pennsylvania USA

I'm a graphic designer, photographer, and new mom. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one program with me, it would be Illustrator. I've gotten to speak at conferences in Cleveland and London, which seems an odd pairing to me, and I've recently pulled from both of those for a book that's so close to finished. When I’m not working, I’m into big headphones, East Bay punk rock, and wearing too much eyeliner.

Back Story

Maximum Strength

The original composition, from my thumbnail sketch, was going to be two or three women, so I sketched each one up on her own sheet of paper. That way, I could stack them on my lightbox, and move them around until I found a layout that I liked. Still, with sketches nothing is set in stone, and once I illustrated them digitally, they just didn't fit together in a way that I liked. So I focused on just one character, and made her as strong as possible.

Skylines and Onesies

The skyline in the background is actually Pittsburgh. I've used that skyline in a few projects before, and keep joking that I'll slap it on anything that I can. It's one of my favorite things about the city— coming out of the Liberty Tunnels and BAM, there's that skyline. Also I always say you can pull inspiration from anywhere, and the colors for this poster came from one of my son's onesies.

Bikes and Posters

I used to have a 40-minute commute by car. Now that I'm working from home, I'm planning on setting up a kid-friendly bike rig to do my Post Office runs for poster shipments.
