Bike Shed Event III

(1m x 1.4m inksketch)

For the latest incarnation of The Bike Shed Event I produced my biggest ink sketch yet. Entitled "In Dedication" it was a celebration of the last two shows using bikes that were on show and in the bike park, as explained in my preview post on Vimeo . 

Above is the full piece and below are some detail shots. I'm organising a limited print run of this piece, if you want to be put on the waiting list for a copy please mail me at:


Kingdom of Kicks - Dirt Bike Bobber

(ink sketch)
Kingdom of Kicks have done it again producing a simple no frills ridable bike with this xs650 build. I love the pipes and kicked up tail on this. For more info on this bike click here

Race Fit - GS1000

(ink sketch)
I've been wanting to sketch a Race Fit bike for a while, I'd even been chatting with them about getting a workshop visit sorted but our schedules never worked out. Well here's the end result of a couple of hours in front of their GS1000. The bike is a customer build that is built for both everyday use and track days so there is some serious performance stuff on here.

Hard Luck - Harley Choppers

(ink sketch)
Afer meeting the Hard Luck Tattoo guys at the Kingdom of Kicks opening. I was hoping to see their bikes again. Choppers always have great sweeping lines on them and this pair of Harleys are no exception to the rule. The Hard Luck guys are opening a Tattoo shop in North Richmond soon...

Cres's Honda CB72

 (ink sketch)
As luck would have it another bike that I'd seen at a party before turned up on the Sunday, and this is one that just could't escape the sketchbook! This 1962 CB72 is a race bike in disguise, as it is an ex Honda Racing Corporation (HRC) TT Racer having raced at the TT in 63. What I love about this bike is that it is quite obviously ridden ("like you stole it" according to Cres) and has a natural feel to how it has evolved since Cres took ownership of it.
