Illustration Friday: Retro

In the interests of trying out (and discarding) a different approach to silhouettes for a current project, here is a bicycle for Illustration Friday!

Illustration Friday: Retro

I like simple bicycles. It isn’t even the aesthetic, it’s just easier. I need a low entry-leve. I like back-pedal brakes. I’m not a sports cyclist. I did buy two bicycles in the last two days, but having also discarded one this represents a net gain of only one. One is a lovely pale yellow vintage (70s) style with only 7 gears (the store owner wouldn’t let me have a back-pedal brake). The other is a second-hand electric bicycle and really heavy. Also self-motivated and with a longing for freedom. No doubt there will be more news on this later.

  1. I like the bicycle in the drawing almost as much as I like the drawing! Like you, simplicity appeals to me regarding bicycles, and I really prefer ONE-speed bikes. But which bicycle did you keep?
