Karl Edwards & the Pedersen Poster Project

My buddy Karl Edwards is one of the best illustrators out there. He's also a cyclist and vintage bike collector, which is how we met.

Sometimes Karl's cycling interests and work life intersect, as in his latest project, a poster for Pedersen bikes, those crazy looking vintage machines that have found new life and are now being reproduced in the Czech Republic.

You're looking at the finished product above, but for a glimpse into Karl's creative process, check out his Workbook page. You'll see early sketches and an idea or two that didn't make the cut.

While you're admiring the illustration, check out the details. Karl is a real stickler, and you'll see he has even included a dynamo hub and light.

Thanks for his permission to post the illustration.
