Iconic Cycling Jerseys
  • Iconic Cycling Jerseys
     

    An idea crossed my mind recently about infusing my love of cycling and the Tour de France with a simple graphic approach to creating prints. 
     
    In the year that the Tour celebrates its centenary, I wanted to take a look back into the history. I've always loved the look, style and even feel of those old cycling jerseys. The colours, logos, type and design style always grabbed my attention and in many ways is what makes the Tour the big draw that it is.
     
    I've highlighted the icons of the Tour, the likes of Fausto Coppi, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Tom Simpson, Raymond Poulidor and Robert Millar. 
     
    So here are a few ideas for forthcoming screen prints, giclee prints and postcards. At the moment I am creating these in my spare time but may open the ones I can up for sale on my online shop soon so watch this space.
     
    Enjoy!
