I think it’s pretty safe to say that most motorcyclists have at least two passions. Motorcycles, and that other thing.
For some people that other thing is welding, writing, mechanics, art, photography, medicine, the list goes on. When you make those two passions come together in some way, life seems richer, with an extra layer of devotion.
I like to think that I’ve been an artist my whole life. It was my first passion. So when I started riding, motorcycles began to influence my work. It was subtle at first, but then I began to spend more and more time trying to figure out how to sneak the spirit of travel and two wheels into as many projects as I could. I would draw everything from my engine to the many different places it had taken me.
