Avid Cyclist

I like this character I drew for Bike Snob a lot. I feel like he has some stories to tell. Luckily Bike Snob has a good story about him here: https://www.outsideonline.com/2353241/who-are-all-these-avid-cyclists-anyway

2019 Taj

Crazy to think there is a 2019 version of a Taj signature bike (my first one was in 1996). I'm so washed up and old that it's not even me riding the bike in the video, but they're still making it! It really is a fun cruiser just to pedal around and perfect for someone who doesn't want to deal with a lot of finicky bike technology. Just good ol' BMX parts and spec on a 26" wheeled size make this bike easy to keep rolling. The video is a bit heavy on the BMXin' and jumpin' around, but really, this bike is a lot of non-serious fun to just ride around.

Surfin' North Korea

Serfs up!
I love that I'm starting to get assignments that aren't bike related as an illustrator. Kind of cool to see the progression in my work. This one is for Outside Magazine and deals with surf tourism in North Korea. Work wise it feels like a breakthrough in my technical ability to cartoon people... although, this guy is a bit of a cartoon already.

A few recent Bike Snob illistrations

Kissing Bike Lanes Is the New Kissing Babies. Since I broke my arm and can't really use my drawing hand I had to embrace the shakey line-look for the drawing. This is a good bit of writing:  https://www.outsideonline.com/2327256/bike-lanes-make-political-sense-too
