Picasso Inspired Bike Drawing

I've been fascinated with Picasso's line drawings of animals for a long time and have messed around with doing something similar with a bike a few times, with pretty poor results...

This time I'm actually semi pleased with how it came out. For not being much of an artist, I think it came out pretty good looking.

Toss it in a big guilded frame and call it a classic.

Doh! Just a tad too late!

Not a bad idea though it has an understated pleasantness to it, I think.

I don't know art but I know what I like...

Nice work!
Draw me one with a little more saddle extension and I'll put it up in my house.

Looks great, i think you could sell a million T shirts. You have a good eye, keep drawing.

I had a similar experience with Miro's art. I ended up filling the house with my paintings, kind of addictive.

Matt's plan is to be the Specialized / Trek of the bike line-drawing industry - no custom sizing.

Damn, and I thought that the level top tube was a sign that he was listening to my custom build requirements.
