About this Poster

I've been drawing since I was a kid, illustrating "adorably cute" creatures and scenes. I have always been fascinated with deep sea creatures, and this poster took my knack for cuteness to another level. I turned the anglerfish, often quite threatening in appearance, into just a regular dude on his merry way in the deep, dark sea.

Meet Rosie Alyea

Seattle, Washington USA

I moved to Seattle straight after college, saved four pay checks to buy a bike, shipped it, assembled it, and have been earning my thighs of steel on Seattle's hills ever since. I love to draw and am fascinated by patterns. My comfort place is drawing and creating alphabets and whimsical illustrations. It's been a fun ride so far, and I'd love to eventually open my own paper studio to share cute and fun creations with the world!

Back Story

Rolling In The Deep

In the beginning, I was going to have a deep sea diver on the bike, but I thought it would be much more fun to make a fish traveling instead. I then mapped details in a second round of sketches. Finally I created a third drawing in pen that incorporates all of the details into the objects and imagery. I lost count of the amount of trace paper I used!

Her Name Was Lola

I've been riding a bike since I was a kid. I've lived a lot of places, but I've always been sure to buy or rent a bike during my stay. My favorite was a blue beach cruiser in Salt Lake City named Lola. It's so interesting to ride in a foreign place, discovering local routes and riders. I commute by bicycle nearly every day now, and I take that time to think and plan my day. Some people get inspired in the shower, I definitely find inspiration on my bike!

Up The Hill, Underwater

I felt a connection to this little fish, as Seattle is often a dark and wet place. Maybe subconsciously I was drawing a self-portrait, biking over hills in the cold and rain. There's a very fun and personal aspect to this poster that can't be denied.
