Stripped


As I was drawing this dismantled bike a bus driver stopped and yelled out the window that if I had been by 3 weeks earlier I could have drawn the whole bike. It's chained to the post and I'm sure the owner will be by at some point to claim the rest.

Cool sketch main man.

It would not have look as "cool" [to plagerize Munich] as it does now. Great capture.

If you come back next week and every week there after,possibly we can be privvy to time lapse sketches showing progressive disintegration of this motorcycle!

Steve, I just noticed it comes under "Crown Heights", that's Brooklyn isn't it.
Did you take it apart yourself and return later when it was safe to draw?

Sheila, I thought "cool" was so American you wouldn't notice ;-)

Love this one, Stephen-your capture of things mechanical always amazes me, no matter what form they are in- but I also love the palette...

Fraser, it's on the corner of Sterling and Rogers, we walked that way coming back from Franklin Park.

Sheila, I agree, I only drew it because it had been stripped.

Emikk, I think that's a good idea, sooner or later it will be gone.

Memi, thanks, I had fun with this one.
