cycling illustration cardiffThe Printhaus in Canton have a regular market where their artist members have stalls and sell their wares. Every market has a theme (this one is bikes), and for the last few markets there has been a zine. Heather at The Printhaus asked me if I’d be interesting in creating a cycling illustration for the next market on Sunday 28th June to go in the zine.

It’ll be single-colour in the zine but here it is in its full acid-drop glory! The feeling I was trying to create was the freedom of being out cycling on your own in strange countryside on a hot day when you’re maybe 12 years old. That’s what was going on in my head, anyway.

It’s pencil-sketched, inked and then coloured up in Photoshop. There’s a cardboard background too, for a little more interest.
