After being swamped with freelance work for what seems like months, im finally getting back to work on some personal illustrations (cycling related duh). Projects like this remind me why I wanted to be an illustrator/designer to begin with. If only I could find someone to pay me to do this all day long.EDDY "The Cannibal" Merckx!

Bernard "The Badger" Hinault
Laurent "The Professor" Fignon
Greg "Le Monster" Lemond

Lastly, I started a series of Eddy Merckx Greatest moments. This is Stage 17 of the 1969 Tour. Eddy attacked over the top of the Col du Tourmalet, he then soloed the last 130km to with the stage by over 8 minutes.

^ Me too, those are awesome!

Today I rode my bike to work decked out as the Mad Hatter. Got a couple honks and a few high fives + lots of smiles. Can't wait to ride home tonight.

Today...mountain biking is quite possibly the hardest thing I've ever done. I'm so sore right now. I literally fall every 30 feet or so...and in Arizona that means I'm falling into rocks, down a cliff, or into a cactus. My body aches.

Today I gave away all of my candy.
It got to the point I ended up giving out clif bars to last few kids who were already on my doorstep.

Alas the perks of living in a "nice" neighborhood that gives out "better" candy.

We bought a couple bags of candy and waited to hand it out, three kids showed up all night. Portland sucks, nothing but hipsters and mustaches.

Same, but the problem here was rain. Definitely no hipsters (save me) in my neighborhood.

U-Lock 1, zombies 0.

We had an influx of kids this year because the house down the street did a haunted house. The street was lined with cars the whole night. We usually get about 20 and let the kids just grab handfuls because I don't want the candy in the house. This year, we had to limit kids to a couple pieces each.

And then we went out for mexican food and saw Tony Clifton.
