About this Poster

Sometimes riding a bike through the city feels like getting bounced around from hazard to hazard like a ball in a old-school pinball machine. I wanted to capture that exhilarating feeling in a whimsical manner.

Back Story

Mom and Dad's Machine

In the early '80s for their one year wedding anniversary, my parents bought themselves a Gottlieb & Company Circus pinball machine. I still own that machine and used it as a reference when making my posters.

And the Cat Just Watched

When I had filled a few pages with possible ideas for bike hazards related to pinball, I made a quick pencil sketch of the best ideas to rough-out the layout of the poster. After that, I kept the sketch close while I translated my ideas onto the computer.

Ride, Chat and Relax

I love the social aspect of bicycling. My favorite rides are on forest trails with a couple of friends where you can ride, chat and relax.
