Ride for Reading

Book delivery with a difference

Recently I concluded a KickStarter project here. As part of the reward scheme set up by the author of the project, and book, it was planned to give out custom illustrations of animals of the supporter’s choice who would ride a bike. The project produced five such reward claims, and so it was my task to produce these five illustrations after the main book illustrations were complete.

Not sure if it was a coincidence, but all the animals to ride a bike were selected as canines; with most being family pet dogs. The only exception was the final commission, which was to be a wolf. As you can understand, and if you have read the article about the project, animals are not designed to ride bikes. So the complexity of redesigning the seating area of the bike to allow the animal to ride it and also play with the anatomy of the animal a little was a task. You can see all five of the canines as they ride their bikes, in this blog post.

THE BRIEF

The task at hand was to deliver a set of five illustrations of given animals, to be sat on a chosen bike they would ride. Many were direct references to given animals, such as pets, and the others were to be referenced for likenesses. All had to be in the same style as the book project, and presented in high enough resolution to be printed as an art print and framed. Being sent to the donator on completion.
