10:45 pm - GR LA Post-It Show!

Howdy, Folks! I'm going to be in another Giant Robot show! GR Los Angeles this time, for their annual Post-It show, which is very exciting. I got to go to one that Kate was in a couple years back and it was amazing.

All I wanted to draw today was bicycles so I decided to run with it and make it a bicycle-themed series.






In a Japanese graveyard in the snow




Riding in the baby bike seat with my mom.




Our friend Aaron Fu, who rescues vegetables from the EarthFare dumpster (and shares them with us!). He has a rad bike-basket which is why I wanted to draw this one. He's also embroidered the most incredible pair of shorts for himself.






Kind of supposed to be of my friend Nate.




Biking up the big hill to canoe club




My dad claims that he had a bike in college which he could ride no-handed so well that he would carry canvases back and forth to school like that. My drawing ended up looking more like Drew by accident though. They both have big hair and often beards. Also I messed up his collar so I drew a scarf over it which I don't think would have been my dad's style. (Sorry, Dad.)




I don't think Drew and I have ever managed this one successfully.




Lastly, what is the funniest thing ever? How about when you are 5 years old and your dad gives you a brand new bicycle and then he rides away on it himself!? Hilarious!

Anyway, all the 3" x 3" post-its are only going to be $20 (!!!!) so if you live in LA come check it out!

Hey Anis! I won't be there! :( At least, not for the opening- I might be there in January, and if there are any Jen Corace ones left I'll pick one up for you. :) How do you know her work?

That crazy spot black on the baby bike seat one blew my mind!

I love spot blacks so so much. I gave the mom wonky braids and a face that came out too big. Solution: cover them all up with lovely black ink!

You give me hope.

My friend Anna has a tiny clown bike that she won throwing darts. She looks really funny riding it. Too bad her dad wouldn't let her buy the gorilla suit. (Circus Circus in Las Vegas).

My friend has one of those! I went to a party once where they repeatedly rode it off a diving board into a swimming pool. I tried riding it but it was impossible.
