Addiction



When Jonathan from Deathtraps MC emailed me and asked if I would take a stab at illustrating a difficult scenario for them. He asked if I could draw a chopper dude with an addiction problem - snorting the white line off the inside of the curve on the road. The image hit me instantly. When I think of the Deathtraps dudes that is exactly the image I get of them. I love illustrating shit that inspires me or gives me vision like this. Thanks guys for looking me up. The shirts turned out great!
Here's the version with the front wheel added. and a detail shot to really get personal with that freak!

Dude, that is so bad ass. That is the best illustrative example of riding the "white line" that there probably ever will be. That image will go down in biker history, mark my words. Well done my friend.
