This is a little drawing I made as a gift for my dad, who's birthday it is today.

The motorbike is a 1964 JAWA 250. Dad bought it last fall and has been working on it all winter long. He did everything from reupholstering the seat to fixing the engine to prettying up the paint and shining the chrome, all by hand. It's now pretty much as good as new, or as good as a 40 year old bike ca be.

And yes, my dad does look like that. :)

Ink, markers, colouring pencils & gel pen on marker paper (I had run out of Bristol board, had to make do with ordinary marker paper), about 20 cm x 20 cm

Cute drawing and a really great motorcycle. Happy four year and two and a half months' birthday of the drawing!

Ah, the most beautiful motorcycles. My grandpa had red one. I have only Jawa 50, quite young, 27-years-old. :D

Btw, cool drawings. Awesome style. ;)

i love it! your characters have such personality, which is really a feat since your style is very minimal

Thank you so much! :)

I always try and get things as minimal as I can while still getting the maximum impact. I really like minimalisim and it's fun to see how much you can actually pare things down without losing any meaning or depth.

It's a really, really cool motorbike! And since it's vintage, it's just that little bit cooler. :D
