A Cafe Racer Kind of Summer

Been a little bummed about not being able to go riding since I wrecked my Triumph . . . 

Ironically enough I started this piece before my moment of idiot and felt like finishing it today.

I was watching a documentary on the cafe racers in England back in the 50's and figured I'd use that as fuel for this piece (no pun intended).  One of the popular hangouts was on this soot ridden motorway, so why not incorporate this iconic atmosphere.  What is a motorcycle without some grime?

 I've been super busy working on illustrations for a children's book by Arlene Taylor called Tyler Loves Tape.  Hopefully it will be up and running by January!

Here is my design for the Teacher.

Also completed the save the date flyer for an upcoming art show at Berkeley City Club in January.
