In the summer of 2013 I was invited to contribute to a bicycle inspired poster exhibition in Manchester. Artcrank set no specific brief, other than the image had to be related to bicycles, or bicycle culture. Below are a few images of the work I created. A limited run of these posters have been screen printed and are available to buy.
Prior to vectorising the artwork was inked with brush to keep the linework loose and spontenious.
Details and shading were economic, to allow for easier screen printing.
At the digital stage any corrections were kept to a minimum, to keep the authenticity of the hand drawn lines.
As the artwork was printed on a dark red background, the line work could be diguarded,
leaving only the fill colours to be printed.
