This poster was inspired by the individuals who make up the bike community around the Twin Cities. The idea was to get a flavor of that into the poster.
I express my ideas, thoughts and passions to the world through clean lines, intriguing typography, and patterns that have evolved from modern influences. I feel as comfortable using a mouse as I do using a pencil.
My process started with getting down a bunch of very rough thumbnail sketches: These were done very quickly, the looser the better, just to get the ideas out of my head.
Once I had an idea I dug, I placed the sketch into Illustrator and began to build the shapes and forms. When the design was finished I put down my mouse and grabbed my squeegee.
Turning the gears on the bike helps to turn in the ones in my head.
