21 Days of Cycling Art at the 2017 Tour de France.

The time has finally come for me to leave the comfort of my home studio, get in a camper van and chase the Tour de France – day-by-day for 21 stages in France!

That’s right, I’m off to see the Tour!




The idea is simple, I will follow each stage of the 2017 Tour de France and draw what I see, feel and experience. I couldn’t be more excited; I couldn’t be more frightened! How can such a simple thing be so overwhelming and awesome at the same time?

The 2017 Tour de France will start in Düsseldorf, Germany this July 1st and make it’s way around France.


I’m so excited and I’m scared to death.


As a first time Tour de France follower I’m jumping in with both feet! 21 days on the road in a little camper van – I must be crazy! And I am, I’m crazy about the Tour de France, I’m crazy about cycling and I’m crazy about being the first, get this – First Cycling Artist to Chase the Tour de France and Draw for 21- Days of the Tour!

Until I hear otherwise, I’m the first! You’re my witness. And you can join me.

I’m looking for sponsors, friends, help, information, ideas, hints, tips and anything that can make this the most amazing event ever!

I’ll share all of the 21-Days of Art on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and I’ll need your help to share, comment, laugh and send ideas the entire time I’m in France.

So it begins today, the quest for the Tour de France and the quest for sponsors to help make it the social media event I know it can be.

If you have any suggestions on or about anything—where to stay, what to look for, how to get around – I’d love to hear them. Remember, I’m a Tour de France virgin—if you’ve been then you know more than me and I can use your help!

Much more to follow as the quest to chase the Tour de France continues.

So send your thoughts and ideas, post on my Facebook Page, Twitter or Instagram!
