Bicycle Art!!! Hooray!

Hi!
they don't have an art forum 'yet' so i figured i'd sorta start an impromptu one.
I suppose to keep it cool, budding artists should keep it bike related and original stuff only!

here's the latest with a little background work. removed the first pic cause i have scrapped that idea. i plan on making a new sticker for my road bike head tube soon. i'll post that when it's ready.

For whatever reason I can't get the pic to show up as an image. I might need sleep.
