My home city is full of bicycles. The Twin Cities love bicycles, and they are everywhere. There are so many and they are all so unique that there has to be a project in there somewhere. I had been considering taking up a new illustration challenge this summer, and since I love bikes and drawing characters I decided to combine the two. I take pictures of bikes around the city, then design and illustrate a character based on each bike. These have been going up on the Paper Bicycle blog, but it is about time I share some of them here.
Andrew has a collection of strange collections: a collection of bottles manufactured before 1980, a collection of patches that are at least 70% yellow, a collection of cheap plastic dollar store toys…
There are more characters on the Paper Bicycle blog, plus little blurbs about each of them, but I think I may try and update this blog with them in future, so stay tuned!
