Second in the Series. Winter cycling for me is all about slowing down and embracing the world around me. Much of which is covered in snow or frozen still. I ride in the open landscapes of the midwestern states north of Chicago on the Wisconsin line. Filled with farms at rest and wooded trails I’m grateful for the times I can get outside.
This series was created by dragging paint across the paper without a brush and then pen and ink details.

This Cyclocross World Championships poster celebrated the return of the UCI competition to the Netherlands in 2014. Hoogerheide hosted the best of the best in CX, thus a little nod to windmills, clogs and rainbow colored wheels.
We love cyclocross — its up close and personal. It’s loud, hard and fast. Cyclocross is about power and smarts, but mostly it’s about pain and hard work. Frozen, wet, covered in mud and tired we ride on to finish. We ride on to win.
This is my interpretation of how every rider we pass or that passes us – sticks with us. As we revel in the glory and the mud, and as we push ourselves outside the comfort zone.
The city that never sleeps is where we find our lone urban cyclist as he makes his way through the shadows of this imaginary NYC landscape. Lights sweep the skies as car head lights sweep the canyons to reveal our bike rider on his fixed gear machine.
With it’s focus on the night skyline in the Big Apple this image could grace the walls of any fan of cycling, or New York City.
The Paris Roubaix race first ran in 1896 and has been torturing cyclists ever since. It is known as “The Hell of the North” because of the difficult road and weather conditions that rage throughout the area. With cobblestone roads and wind-swept fields, this “Queen” of the Classics is an annual favorite among cycling fans everywhere, and a right of passage for any likely classics champion.
