Portrait Series #3
Daniel "Danny" MacAskill


To experiment with different technique and to enhance our illustration skills we came up with the idea of doing a portrait series. One portrait a month, different technique and style every time.









Who?

Daniel “Danny” MacAskill is a Scottish trials cyclist, from Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. He works professionally as a street trials pro rider for Inspired Bicycles Ltd.

In 2009 he released on YouTube the five-and-a-half-minute street trials video “Inspired Bicycles“. This video has been seen 350.000 times within 40h and until July 2016 about 37.450.000 times.

Over night he became a star. He gave up his job as a mechanic so he could ride full-time.
Over the years he produced many more breathtaking videos.

Why?

Danny’s videos are breathtaking impressive stunning playful and rich in variety. He makes every place his personal playground and is doing stunts that you never thought would be possible. They are ideas brought to life!

Style and technique?

We wanted to create a playful entertaining detailed and very likeable portrait illustration of Danny. Just as his videos and his riding style is and as we think he as a person is.

So we picked iconic images of his videos and created a collage of the milestones of his pro-rider career. The ideas he brought to live to entertain his fans.
