The opening for Art Crank was excellent! Pine Street Station was completely packed, with a really good vibe and lots of posters sold. Now that it’s up and hung, here’s my finished design. The opening was a one night thing, but all of the posters have migrated and are now on display and for sale at Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop, through March 18th.
Here is a flickr with all of the posters and pics of the event: http://www.flickr.com//photos/cyouel/sets/72157629089395218/show/
When the event is over, you can purchase a “B is for…” poster from me directly. They are $40 + shipping. Email: janeradstrom @ gmail.com !

Here’s a sneak preview of my poster for Art Crank Austin! I can’t show the whole thing until after the opening tonight. Art Crank travels to various cities, picks out 30 artists and asks them to do a hand printed poster about bikes. I decided on an iconic drawing of a bike along with the simple phrase, “B is for Bicycle” to celebrate the way that bicycles become a singular presence when they go from hobby to habit in your life. Hope to see you at the event tonight: http://artcrank.com/austin.
This year, I have committed to my first long distance bike ride! I am going to ride in the MS 150 from Houston to Austin April 21-22. It’s 150 miles with overnight camping in between. Part of registering is committing to raise money for The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
These watercolors are thank you paintings for people who donated. They are freshly matted, and I am about to pack them up and put them in the mail!
