New Bike Snob illustration

I really like this one: https://www.outsideonline.com/2321211/bikes-kids-racing

Fits perfectly with the Single Track Flyers group that just started in my small town of Houghton. Kids on bikes are good!

New drawing, the balance of bikes and cars.

What would it take to flip the balance between cars and bikes? The new Bike Snob over on Outside Mag considers the often irrational priority given to autos in the USA.

Tesla Twister

When I get these drawing assignments I usually only get a headline and a small snippet of the story. Based on this title I didn't have a lot to go on but I guessed that maybe Elon should be shot into space because the MASSIVE screen in Tesla's and all their gadgetry is a huge distraction for drivers. I tried to come up with the most distracting thing you could be doing with the screen. Read Bike Snob's full story here: https://www.outsideonline.com/2314461/we-need-fire-elon-musk-space

Bike Snob likes to ride in the morning

New Outside Bike Snob article: https://www.outsideonline.com/2312031/ride-early-ride-often

I had quite a laugh drawing this one! A few inside jokes if you follow Bike Snob's blog. Sweet aero bars, sandals and a "crabon" frame. I personally think it looks extra ridiculous because I so obviously used his author headshot to draw from... as if he always has that exact same expression. Incidentally I've been getting up and riding early myself, but mostly because my stupid cat has started screaming for breakfast at 5am.
