About this Poster

Proud Papa was inspired by our son Griffin who was born during the design phase. In fact, the sketches were done in the hospital. The idea is that despite dragging junior along in a bike trailer Dad wins the race with a surge of pride and the energy that being a new father brings.

Meet Todd Zerger

St. Paul, Minnesota USA

Born under a wandering star (over California that wandered over to Minnesota), bikes have been my lifelong companions. Design came later but the two have been the faithful roommates of my heart for as long as I can remember.

Back Story

Idea After Idea

I usually go through five or six ideas – drawing in my sketchbook, testing thoughts on the computer, searching for inspiration. There are a lot of late nights designing followed by some long days and late nights printing the posters myself in my studio. I love the hands-on part and take pride in having created the prints myself from start to finish.

Art You Can Ride

I got my first bike when I was about five, fell in love with riding, and never stopped. I have ridden to every school I’ve attended and all but one job (which was 80 miles away). Cycling represents my connection to adventure, and bicycles are also beautiful works of art in their own right that inspire me.
