These are a couple of neighbors i pass on my bike most days and have long had the urge to draw. The real reason for this post, though, is that I’ll be participating once again in STL ArtCrank! I’m flattered to be one of 30 artists, designers and badasses to make limited edition bike-themed prints, all in support of another neighbor, Bikeworks. Last year it was a great show and a great party, and this year should be even better. from the FB page:

Friday, May 11 – 5:00pm – 11:00pm
Saturday, May 12 – 2:00pm – Midnight
Sunday, May 13 – 5:00pm – 9:00pm

ARTCRANK returns to St. Louis as part of the 2012 edition of the Missouri Professional Cycling Series — May 11-13. Once again, we’ll stage the world’s greatest bike poster show in the friendly confines of Atomic Cowboy.

We’re teaming up with Widmer Brothers Brewing and Atomic Cowboy to support St. Louis BicycleWORKS, an organization that gives kids the chance to earn a free bike while they learn about bike safety and maintenance through their Earn-a-Bike program, which has provided inner-city kids with more than 10,000 bikes.

Saturday, May 12 is race day in The Grove Neighborhood, and we’ll be offering free bike parking (and tasty snacks) thanks to Clif Bar. Plan to stick around that night for Street Sprints and Cruiser Drag Races on Manchester, as well as a special DJ set by Jeremy Powers (a.k.a. J POW), champion pro racer with Jelly Belly Pro Cycling.
