Oak Groavel

Tagged along with Todd P who discovered some new gravel out northeast of Oak Grove Mo. Lafayette County has some good hills. Lots of farm dogs - the friendly ones bark at you, but you have to watch for the silent Rottweiler - they're smart & don't give away their position until they're right on you. Great day on the bike.

Bike Art Book

About a year ago, I was contacted by Greek street artist Kiriakos Iosifidis — of the Carpe Diem group in Athens — to be a part of their latest project, BIKE ART: Bicycles in Art Around the World. The Carpe Diem group works with municipalities to promote beautification through urban murals, festivals and exhibitions. Graffiti with permission, if you will. Anyway, Kiriakos had curated a couple mural books in the past, and was putting together this new bicycle-themed version that touched on all aspects of art and bike and design.
I thank Kiriakos for allowing me to be a part of this project - it's quite an honor to be among the talent exhibited in this volume. Check it out if you can - It makes a beautiful coffee table book, and by purchasing a copy you are supporting the printed page. Long live print! Stick your nose in and sniff in that ink. Can't get that on screen, but here are a few screen teasers of the contents. You've seen plenty of my work, so I've included some others. Enjoy.

Ride your bike!
