Precious Bike

I've finished the magazine illustration for an article about bikers. I've never drawn a bike like this before so I hope the die-hard bikers will forgive any flaws!

I did try and try and try Jessie. Loved your chameleons. Hope you get this!

Oh thankyou April! :) I love getting comments and I'm so sorry people had trouble here. It seems fine now.

This makes me smile, Jessie, I drove a bike for over 10 years, when I was young(er:) and can relate to the feeling, this painting seems to express for me, LOL,
great illustration
love

Thankyou Andrea! I've only ever travelled on the back of one, they always seem so heavy to me:)

It's brilliant Jessie - I love the expression on his face as he carries it over the puddle, fab!

Buskitten said...

Oh, I loved the chamillions (can't spell it!!) too, but it wouldn't let me tell you - the pink one I really liked, that was my fave!

Buskitten said...

Chameleons. There:)

I couldn't draw a bike in a thousand years!

So pleased to see your comments are being accepted again. I've been having problems too. My blog is not updating on your blogroll, but please do pop in from time to time, as Ugly Rabbit is still there.
As for your illustrations, well done. I love them. Imagine being able to lift a bike!
All the best for now
April

Hi April, I'll check to see why that's happening.
