After I moved to the Dominican Republic, I became fascinated with the motorcycles that fill the streets there. I guess there was alot of motorcycles in the states too, but I never paid too much attention to them. It always seemed in the states that men ride motorcycles the way women wear jewelry. They serve a much more utilitarian purpose here. Here they're held together with tape and twine, and their frames are scarred and bruised like the faces of fighters.

These illustrations are based off a collection of sketchbook drawings I've done. You can see those here...

thanks guys!! Yep, I'm back! One of the nice parts of me living in the DR is that I have plenty of time for both my sketchbook art, and threadless designs!

The only hard thing here is the internet is bad so much of the time. Of course on the day this goes up for scoring the internet was out all day! LOL!

Very cool!
Very artistic, lovely scetches, the colours work great together, and very insightful post on your design.
"it always seemed in the states that men ride motorcycles the way women wear jewelry" hahaha!
I'm not from the States, but I totally get what you're talking about. These symptoms characterize most of the western world imho.
Great work :)
