Dream Cycle

Darren @ Dream Cycle in Vancouver is a cool guy with a cool dog and a cool shop that builds the coolest bicycles. Check out pics in the gallery. Not a lemon in that bunch! Stare at them for hours... Anyway, he builds his own frames now - the touring/commuting varieties with more to come I am sure - and wanted a head tube badge to adorn them. He already had the "Sedgwick" designed in an urban tag style from another artist, and wanted to go with a phoenix & wheel motif. I must have been on an art deco Chrysler Building. Rocketeer kick and came up with the following: I was impressed at the detail that the badge-maker was able to retain. Go buy one!!!

Here's a wicked (I already overused "cool" earlier) build video with a great custom track:

Gaulzetti Cicli

My magazine artwork has afforded me exposure to many ambitious startups in the bicycle industry. I've enjoyed building relationships with each and every one, and continually am inspired by their passion and creativity. Craig Gaulzetti spent years racing in Europe and contacted me to design a logo inspired by the Wallonia rooster (French-speaking region of southern Belgium). Simple, sexy bicycles he makes. I'm rather fond of this one. Those are not decals - that is wet paint. My apologies to the painter and his Exacto-cramped hands More pics here.

See Jane Ride

This original is a long time coming, part of a logo design I did for See Jane Ride Bicycle Tours. Fun stuff, finally coming together.

Fight or flight

Calories, you will burn today... Time to hop on the bicycle for a couple hours and discover new trail.

I'm thankful for great family, friends and to all those that helped pave the way for us to afford the blessed lives we live today. Here's to the upkeep of that fresh pavement.

Got another Dirt Rag cover under my belt. This was the first large painting I've attempted since my crash/surgery, and the arm hurts, but I have a backlog of projects and images in my head from those 6 months that need to get out. The final printed piece looks a bit different because the art director tweaked the color a bit. I don't mind it, but I like this better. Let's title it Babe
