My friend, singer/songstress Rupa Marya asked me to do a poster for a great project last month. She and her band, the April Fishes, were doing a tour around the entire Bay Area on their bikes, culminating in a show at the Independent here in SF. We did two versions, one for the tour and one for the Independent show.

I’ve done a lot of illustrations of people on bikes in my time, and one thing I can say is that it never gets easier! It’s a very tricky thing, all the gears and pedals and weird angles that never seem right. But this poster was a lot of fun. And I’ll be doing another shortly for the upcoming Bicycle Music Festival!

Both posters are for sale in my shop! Bay Rising Tour poster & Rupa & the April Fishes at the Independent.
