Black Bicycle Ink

with No Comments

In this digital world filled with megapixels, data transfers, uploads and downloads it’s nice to just pull out a pen and draw a bicycle.

I find the simple action of dipping a nib into a bottle of ink wonderfully relaxing and fulfilling. The act of just drawing what comes to mind has a freeing quality that no digital drawing process can come close to matching.



When I’m looking for solutions to image problems for consignment work or when I’m thinking of the next cycling poster I want to create—starting with a pen and ink is the best way to find great ideas.

With the spontaneity that comes from free hand drawing, images for my cycling art are found much quicker. I see something on the page and chase it, or I start another page. No time is wasted, I get to explore the idea fully.



These pen and ink drawings are my originals, my “art from the hand of the artist”. For some they may just look like big doodles. For me they represent a moment that will never be recreated again, a moment in time when I was searching for something special and found it.

And then I let it fall effortlessly out of my hand.

All by picking up my pen and dipping it in a little bottle of black ink.
