It’s just one of those things I keep coming back to, the old school advertising posters of days past. The simplicity of creating an image with your brand name on it is well, in today’s world refreshing to me. The Hutchinson brand has been around for more than a century and we’ve all ridden them at some point. They’re French and so the rider must be, at least in my simple world.
I hope you like this work, I think it’s very true to my overall style of drawing and painting. Big bold shapes, solid rich color applied with a thick brush full of paint. Voila!
