When I learned the 2010 Tour of California was finishing a stage in Santa Cruz, it seemed to be a great opportunity to have an art show. I had two ideas for a track stand print. I printed one in 2010, then resurrected this one in 2014.
Before doing silkscreen art prints, I was a successful freelance illustrator, published internationally, and in top national publications like Forbes, New York Times, PCWorld.
I just raw a lot of pencil sketches and trace one of my own drawings to improve it. Sometimes I draw small and blow it up on a photocopier: That gives me a good basic composition, then I just have to add details.
I bought my own bike with paper route money. It was a Manufrance 10 speed, and I was the fastest kid on my block. I have since done the AIDS Ride, the Best Buddy Big Sur ride, and toured France.
I like printing because it has a nice balance between mental and physical effort. I love mixing up jars of ink to match the colors I imagined.
