  • Tour de France Portraits
     
    I was recently commissioned by Cycling Plus magazine in the UK to create a set of portraits for their 2013 Tour de France special issue. It's the centenary of the Tour this year and so here we have eight of the contenders for the yellow, green and king of the mountain jerseys with the additon of two tour legends.
     
    The idea was to create the portraits in a style not too disimilar to the collectable vintage cards from the 1950's and 60s. A thoroughly enjoyable commission and will hopefully create more portraits in the near future.
