Fatbike World fatbike!

Well this one was done for Yap Terrance.  Were going to make a jersey out of it.  Done in pretty much the same way as my bikepacking painting but much smaller.  Easier to do, much faster to complete.  I'm doing these in a non-removable book.  It works awesome.

A little side work for a Bike Co-op in the UK

After my latest caricature I was asked to do something for a Bike Coop in the Uk.  They had a idea of what they wanted.  A rough sketch.  I just enhanced it a bit.  Enjoy!!

Bikepacking - A journey down the yellow brick road.

When I started this I really didn't comprehend how popular it would be.  I just thought it would be fun to do a bike in a similar fashion to my old CARtoon magazines.  What better bike to do then a bikepacking bike.  With it's large bags and big tires you can totally exaggerate these things.  So that's what I did.  I worked off my rough sketch and created the monster.  This would spur off into Tshirts, prints, more tshirts, a coffee mug and more.

Where I work...

Well here it is.  This is where the magic happens.  On the right I have my trusty computer.  Dual screens so I can watch a movie and still see what I'm painting on the other screen.  Yes those are Battle Beasts at the bottom of my monitor.  Some of my most prized positions.  The coffee cup fits perfectly under my Nespresso machine.  Custom made by a buddy at work.  Skratch cookie mix for those midnight cravings.  The wood box was made by my son and on loan to me.  Legos were what was left over from some totes I'd brought home one day.  Super glue cause it fixes everything.  Canon printer get's used every once and awhile.   And last but not least my 2012 Oktoberfest mug for all my pens and brushes.

Where the magic happens.  Yes those are Battle Beasts.

Bike caricatures

Think this is my next thing.

Test two of watercolor paints.

The last two projects I've done with different watercolor paints. The first was my tried and trued Crayolas. The second was some pastel shaded paints I picked up from hobby lobby.

So I started this painting a few weeks before Easter. I thought the pastel colors made sense.

Gonna squeeze one last one in right before the wire...or ball drops.

Someone posted this photo to VW Buses on Facebook.  I thought it would make a great painting.  So I needed a Christmas exchange gift for someone, so I whipped it out this morning.
