Bicycle Art

Does anyone know where I can find a good source for bicycle art?

Specifically, I'm looking for the poster from the Queen album where they have all of the nude women on bikes.

I saw it once in a thrift shop, but didn't get it.

There is a reproduction of that poster in the "Crown Jewels" Queen box set.

BTW, the original album was Jazz, and the poster titled "Fat Bottomed Girls"

Thanks for the tip.

The current box set contains a miniaturized version of the poster though.

Looking for a full size version.

I will look to see if I still have that vinyl disk -- if I do the poster should still be in there. It will be Saturday before I can look.

Good tip.

I just bid on a vinyl record on eBay that comes with the poster. I haven't had a record player since 1983, but oh well - At least I'll have the poster.

Back to the original topic - Does anyone have any good links for bicycle art?

just google it

im sure that suggesting you google it is no help since you probably already have, but i did that once when i was bored and i found some amazing stuff, escpecialy peices of furniture, lamps, nic nacs and such all made from old bicycle parts. in fact im thinking of doing the same w/ some of my unusable parts instead of throwing them away. fast eddie outty

Some commercial photography is just photography. Some is art.

What kind of lame ass comment is that? All photography and/or any visual dipiction of an ojbect or series of objects, people, or places for the purpose of entertainment, is art, no matter what its purpose. Would you call the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel religous advertisment? In fact, maybe you're right. Music artist should probably just stick to music alone, and just release albums without any sort of visuals on the casing whatsoever... especially not on the disc itself... we'll have to come up with a generic typeface though, so we might distinguish which albums are which. We'll get those musicians yet, with their ploy to fill our lives with all this commercial nonsense. Fire the cover artists!... or should I say the cover paparazzi? Get a grip.

hey matt

im not going to get into a discussion about what is or what is not art, but i do have personal experience with this - there are alot of very talented ppl who are insulted if called "artist" because the definition of "art" and "artist" as loose, - and usually ever more open ended - than what you defined them as in your post here. i can appreciate your idealism....but......if a photagrapher decides that he/she should be labeled with the same descript as the artist who created the ceiling of the sistine chapel, then there is something wrong there.

if throwing elephant poo on an existing picture of the virgin mary is art, and if the guy who performed the monkey-like task of flinging said poo onto a picture he had no part in creating is called an artist, count me out man.
