Last Saturday was a beautiful Father’s Day. Since my daddy wasn’t there when I was a bizarre kid, he hasn’t had the pleasure of being overwhelmed by handmade gifts. Like paperweight shaped like a turtle, penholder made with playdoh, fake ties with nice quotes about how handsome he is, you name it. He lacked in self-esteem as a parent, missing those cute-and-at-the-same-time-horrible presents, I suppose.
So I decided to give him this thrilling sensation, just to be the VIP of the day. And he is a very very very VIP to me.
And he loves downhill bicycle, and downhill itself. He is also a graphic designer, and that’s pretty cool (you know, having a graphic designer as a father is such a badass thing). But it also mean that he has a very trained eye on design (of course), colours, shapes and so on. So I sweated a lot preparing this drawing.
This is the result. I’m pretty proud of it, and I loved to colour as a vector-style…style. It’s like a zen coloring activity and I enjoyed every second. It took me about 2 hours and a half, and I’ll continue on this style with other subjects (requests and suggestions are welcome!).
