Sean from Team Dream Designs at it again!
Mission 20FIFTEEN is an artist project which coincides with the construction of a velodrome in Milton, Ontario, Canada for the 2015 PanAm Games in Toronto!
The illustrations take approximately 5 weeks to complete. Each one is made up of hundreds of individual and individual drawings to make up a complete bike. They are all created in Adobe Illustrator making the style 100% vector. This allows me be extremely precise with the art, along with that I am able to give the overall look to the bikes a perfect finish, matching paint, shadows and highlights. The bikes now serve as an archive to a specific period and era in cycling that these athletes competed in.

The summer of 2015 will mark the start of the PAN AM games in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The town of Milton will be the host site of the track cycling events and a permanent velodrome is being constructed as part of the ongoing legacy of the games.
In order to build the facility a fund raising effort is now underway to help build what will be known as the home of cycling in Canada. As a resident of Milton, and an avid cyclist my contribution to the fundraising is my art. I will making a donation from the sales of each print sold from this site until the completion of the fundraising effort.
Make it Happen!
Is there anything more appealing to the eye than a well-crafted titanium frame? Moots have been assembling frames from American-made tubes of ti, all with those perfectly spaced beads of filler, since 1981. A Moots frame is a work of art in itself, but this Psychlo X has been embellished by Justin Bauer, an LA-based artist whose work makes the MOOTS look even faster standing still.
Justin’s good mate Steven Ocheltree owns this Moots, built up with a heady mix of Campagnolo 10-speed Record and Chorus, Tune, Thomson and ENVE. The Alpha-Q forks were handed to Justin for a bit of aftermarket artwork. Justin tells us about his process: “I work mainly on canvas. My work is often an exploration of motion and inertia centered around some stable concrete shapes.

Fashion is largely about looking good, but a major part to that equation is staying in shape. There’s a problem with that though, nobody trying to get in shape should squeeze into spandex.
One of the best – in terms of joint health and caloric burn – forms of activity is also one of the greatest fashion culprits out there — cycling. Are you aware of these attires? They’re ridiculous. Though, there are some exceptions and they’re greatly based around one brand, Rapha.
Rapha’s late-20th century Italian feel was cool to begin with, but this year they’ve upped their game considerably. Their lead designer Graeme Raeburn tapped his brother to help with a new collaborative collection. This in-the-family approach is a recipe for disaster, unless your brother is Christopher Raeburn, whose ethical design slant inspired Vogue to write “”Remember the four R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Raeburn.”
Cycling world, prepared to look good…
