I wanted to focus on the key shapes of the bicycle, using parts of the frame and tire to be mimicked by the landscape in the background.
I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and am now based in St. Paul, Minnesota. I work as a freelance illustrator specializing in both editorial illustration as well as comp and storyboard illustration. Clients include Target, Summit Brewing, Men's Health Magazine, Buffalo Wild Wings, Mental Floss Magazine, The Star Tribune, Minnesota Monthly, Heimie's Haberdashery, and numerous ad agencies.
OK. Big disclaimer. I don't own a bicycle... my last bike was an bright orange Schwinn that was stolen 15 years ago in Minneapolis. I had always envisioned that the bike depicted in this poster would be similar.
I love to reference movies and great artists of the past. Two of whom I stole from for this poster were JC Leyendecker and Eyvind Earle.
I have a love and deep knowledge of ‘70s and ’80s soft rock. You know those long infomercials where they scroll the smooth tunes from long ago in front of a fireplace graphic? I already have those songs in my possession...
