2. come out to play now the light nights are here

A few of my bike drawings here. You know when something kind of unintentionally becomes a theme? Well, that. And when a theme comes knocking on my door I do love to go out to play with it. 
Watch this space if you like bikes, or art, and specifically bike art.

3. Cricket Magazine Illustration: “What’s Wrong?”

I love doing big, busy spreads with a lot of activity going on. This one was for Cricket magazine. See if you can find the sports-related “wrongs” in this illustration.

5. The Blue Sky Folder

The Blue Sky Folder

Deep in the archives of my computer there is a small beacon of light that shines brightly through the darkness. It’s called the Blue Sky Folder. Inside is a collection of sketches, experiments, new styles, new techniques, story concepts and a bunch of projects in various stages of completion. This folder is basically a resting place for all the ideas that rattle around inside my head long enough for me to get them down on paper or into various stages of digital completion. Like many other artists I’m always restless to try new things and this is my outlet. 

This is a Blue Sky piece I began almost 3 years ago. I wasn’t quite sure where I was headed with it at the time so I put it in hold to work on other things. I had totally forgotten about it until I was leafing through the the folder recently and it caught my eye. One of the main reasons I had put this one on hold was that the techniques I’d used to create it were very time consuming and a bit unrefined. Looking at the piece again I realized that the solution was sitting right in front of me. I didn’t have my Cintiq tablet when I started so any digital freehand drawing was pretty much out of the question? As I popped the file up on my screen I realized that was no longer an obstacle. It only took me a few hours to finish the piece and I’m psyched because now I finally have a great way to save time and paint right on the computer.

What better warm up for a Monday morning than drawing a bird on a bicycle?

7. … like a fish needs a bicycle


This idiom only works for those who have never met Finola Dorsal. She, unlike many of her species, may not need, but prefers a bicycle to other means of transportation.


So, upon hearing of this week’s Illustration Friday theme, “bicycle”, who could help but think of a fish riding a bike. Who I ask you?

9. Mr Horse is all about elegance

hello :)
I am SO happy to be here.
This is my first post.
I was working on something completely different when I saw this week's challenge. I couldn't resist the temptation so I jumped right at it.
I love bikes! I love animals! I love animals on bikes... I really do! Really! Click to see for yourself!

Now that I have that off my back, I can go back to drawing more animalism for the Strange Food challenge...

oh, and another thing, I'll be tweeting about this, using hashtag #mondayartday ...
Look me up on Twitter

11. Hazy Days of Summer

The sketch, below:

The above is a case where anything can become a story, I guess. It’s just a quickly done cartoon version of my yesterday evening. And, yes, I was wearing hot pink shorts. They are too comfortable to be worried about how they look. And I have no idea how to draw a hazy horizon, but I tried to capture the moment.

12. Bicycle Doggies

This was an experiment in trying something so completely different than what I usually do, it doesn't even look like 'me'. Its 16 x 20 inches, and acrylic on canvas. I used a clunky brush and didn't even try to make the bicycle look right. I hung it in a local shop, and it sold, so is now hanging on some kids' wall, which makes me happy.

13. Bicycle Study

Here's a recent study that I did in Painter. The drawing is a scanned pencil sketch, and all of the color is done in Painter. For the subject, I got the idea from my sister-in-law (who is not a little kid anymore, by the way): she opens up her backpack and tells her dachshund that it's time to go for a ride. He'll jump into the bag, she puts it on, and off they go on their journey!

14. Bicycle

A couple of bicycle images from a job I did for NHK Television (the Japanese National TV Station) a few years ago. I did a series of large spreads which the camera would pan across, and smaller spots which were inter-cut with puppet animation scenes to illustrate the well-loved French picture-book story Anatole, The story of a Paris mouse who's gourmet nose and genius at selecting cheeses saves

15. A bicycle built for two!

This is the cover image of the Spring story in the picture book series I am working on. I had to create a tandem for the rabbit siblings. 'Breezy Bunnies' isn't yet published.

19. And The Winner Is... Deborah Mori!

The winner for the "Bicycle" challenge is:

Deborah Mori!

Congratulations to Deborah Mori (Life Without Novacaine). I chose Deborah's "Monday Artday Bicycle" as the winner for the Bicycle challenge. A simple illustration with charming detail, a fun narrative, a great character - great design and color.

You all made this one very difficult. Some amazing bicycle artwork! I love the inspiration that Monday Artday gives me but Mondays are difficult when it comes down to choosing. I've written this before but I want to repeat it: The quality of art and the wonderful artists here at Monday Artday constantly amaze me. You are all terrific and inspiring and the reason why this blog is so popular. It's always the hardest thing I do all week to pick a winner. Keep 'em coming, artists!

23. Bicycle! Bicycle!

Thanks to this challenge I have the song going over and over in my head, "I want to ride my bicycle..."

Anyhow, here's my version, both as a simple and fancy silhouette.

24. Uni Only or No Bicy's Allowed

The Unicy's and Bicy's were at war for many years before reaching the agreement to just chop their world in half. Of course each side has their own propaganda to deal with. Discrediting one wheel over two while or embracing the one wheeled god. Oh, but don't be fooled! You only see this one side of the world, the other is exactly the same except there are two instead of one. Two wheels, two all knowing and all powerful gods and, of course, two lanes on the street.

"One way," Says those with a single tire. "Both ways," Shouts those with two wheels in response. "You're wrong," Each side shouts in symphony yet ignores its counterpart. "We're right," They all continue as arms start to rise.

Another war ensues and after many years of strife the world is finally one. Each side mingles with its other but those that lost the war are now a minority. Segregation seems something all humanoids capable of. Clearly the Unicy's are superior! That is why they won the war, right?
