Narrow streets and motorcycles

En plein air | delightful intimate urban scene by talented artist Vicky Fang. Watercolor wash touched-up with ink line-work. I just love this kind of illustration.

Space Bike

2000AD | Forty years ago I got this annual for Christmas. Classic sci-fi comic that began in the seventies, which is still going strong. Technical cover by art droid Kevin O’Neill who later went on to create Nemesis the Warlock. We’re visiting my folks in Blighty where this book was stacked upon a shelf.

La Pandilla Gato – more Blacksad. This time a motorcycle gang rorting across the plains. I like how the movement is represented but the wheels just being off the ground.

Le Chat Noir

Blacksad | A hardboiled feline PI in the vein of Philip Marlow has the gritty underworld of 50’s America as seen from the perspective of a grizzled black cat gumshoe. Created by Spanish writer Juan Díaz Canales and artist Juanjo Guarnido its vision is stark and fresh.

Square Sign

Shop Banner Sign | Blue logo with three stripe icon below it. Good clarity of branding easily seen at 1901 S Western Ave. Chicago. The three stripes hark back to Turner days and the tank badges of the fifties Speed Twins. The building motif is appropriate too: M.C. For motor-cycle.

If it makes you happy

Like Steve McQueen | Singer songwriter Sheryl Crow sporting a cool tee which she is proud to wear.

Red Docs

Composition | unusual imagery for an old Trumpet. What looks like a golf course with a scrap yard provides a photoshopped backdrop for a portrait of the owners daughters. It’s like an 80’s album cover.
