Bicycling Magazine assignment

Drawing for the new @bicyclingmag I think this one is out now (I hope!). The assignment was to illustrate how to stay cool while riding in the heat. Had a lot of fun with this, and might have sneaked in my neighbor @michigantech's husky. Sketch to print!



Original sketch idea...

Little further along, but awning was awkward.


Next version... umbrella seemed more like something that people would recognize. 

Been into putting drawings on textured backgrounds lately, but this needed more colors. 

Then it hit me, what better way to stay cool than having an ice cream truck leading the way. Minor van illustrations and it finally all made sense to me as a way to stay cool while riding.
