Bicycle Dreaming posters

After a boring black and white start we are going to splash a bit of colour in this post.

For the launch of my last book I painted a dozen posters, on old maps and charts, about a square metre each. Some sold at the launch, we kept a couple, I hung three in the local bicycle shop, the rest are curled up at home. Nat took photos as they were hanging on the wall in the gallery.Image

“Armageddon Cycles” is what I call my home-made recumbent bicycles that I build out of scrap from the city dump.

Inspired by the insane quest for high-tech machines you don’t want to take too far from the workshop.

Poster called “Dion”, after my Bondi Beach life-saving mate Dion.

Inspired by the ever recurring doping scandals in the cycling world. I devoted a half a chapter of “Bicycle Dreaming” to tracing the history of chemical enhancement on the wheels.
