In just a few days the 2016 Tour de France will start – some dreams will come true and many will not. I for one am looking forward to watching every day and drawing as many pictures as I can while each stage plays out.
Will Nairo Quintana’s dream of victory finally come true? Will Alberto Contador find a place on the podium? Or will Team Sky and Chris Froome crush the hopes and dreams of them all with their calculated and powerful tactics.
With every turn in the road I’ll be looking to capture images and ideas in my drawings and share them with you all.
It’s my dream to someday follow the Tour de France from the side of the road. But until then, I’ll work from the studio with Phil and Paul poetically calling the race and patiently waiting for Phil to say “He’s dancing on his pedals” as Nairo Quintana explodes up Mont Ventoux on Bastille Day.
