A while back I decided I wanted to make an alphabet book wherein each letter had a pattern of things that started with that letter. I did one for “A” a month ago and finally got around to doing “B” today. At this rate, it’s going to take a long time to finish… I might have to step up my alphabet game.
Some people aren’t happy about the NYC Bike Share—Dorothy Rabinowitz, Wall Street Journal Editorial Board Member, is one of angriest. When asked about her objection to Citi Bike, she responded, “Do not ask me to enter the mind of the totalitarians running this government of the city,” “Envision what happens when you get a government that is run by an autocratic mayor, or other leader, and a government, before which you are helpless. The Daily Show did a hilarious segment on the bike sharing outrage. In response, to Rabinowitz’s statement, Jon Steward commented, “It’s just fucking bikes, lady.” So… I had to draw that, right?

Today I remembered that I never did an “All My Bikes” drawing for my STA-L. Don’t tell my other bikes, but this one is my favorite. It was custom made for me by Standard Byke Co. in Davenport, Iowa! Support companies that make their products here, in the United States.
After starting his career as a graphic designer at award-winning studios in New England, Chris accidentally became an illustrator. He’s pretty happy about that. This strange transformation was a result of his daily drawing project that he started in late 2007, in fact he’s still posting a new drawing every day.
Chris holds degrees in Visual Communication Design and Art History from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford, where he is currently pursuing his Masters Degree in Illustration. He has been the recipient of Gold Awards, Silver Awards, Excellence Awards, Judge’s Awards and the Spirit of Creativity Award from the Connecticut Art Director’s Club as well as BoNE awards from the AIGA and a Silver Award from Gaphis. In addition his work has been published in numerous books and publications including Print Magazine and Communication Arts.
