TRDL Tribute Art - Team Lope Bike Girl: Red
This illustration is the second in my series of sketches based on real people I see around, riding bikes and looking awesome.
I saw this girl months and months and months ago, locking her bike up downtown. The bike was an unidentifiable tarcke bike, kind looked like a factory fixie, but the bars and saddle looked older. I was struck by her big puffy parka hood with the hair creeping out. Dodgy in summer, but I guess perhaps not here in the bay area. She was some sort of an Asian mix, and yes, pink belt and all, that's an accurate interpretation of her outfit. Sadly, no helmet that I saw.
Drawing bikes is exhausting!
