BikeBike sketches – April 2011

page detail - BikeBike sketch of Cesar and Luis of the Valley Bikery - ink on paper, about 3"x8"

Here are a few pages from sketchbook No. 58. These two pages were done at the April 23 2011 Regional Bike!Bike! meeting at L.A. City College – a gathering of the dozen excellent bike fix-it community-collective spaces in L.A. County. The truth is that I get some decent drawings done during meetings these days.

Here’s a page I drew that shows the names of all the groups present. All great folks. None of these are intended as logos… they’re just playing around with lettering.

And, keeping with the bike theme, here’s a page I drew on the Metro Blue Line on my way down to check out Long Beach’s wonderful new cycletracks. I like the sketch of the front of my bike – though there are a bunch of mistakes: wheel looks warped, handlebars perspective funny, the whole thing out of proportion…
