    Astounded....

    I am very impressed....



    WHEN my partner and I first met, she was finishing her degree in 'Special Education'. In another couple of days, it will be our anniversary. For sometime now she has told me of someone she knows that can make a nice drawing from a picture. He only does cars or motorcycles. I would listen, smile and nod appropriately. During the last week, I have been cleaning out the shop so the TW had been parked outside. She snapped a couple of pictures and brought them to work. This is my anniversary present. All I could say, over and over again is WOW.......... Am not one for 'Carnival Show' renderings, but this fellow hit 'the nail' square on the head..... THIS IS ME & MY BIKE.... WOW once again. Seems he has a very exacting process for doing his drawing; left to right and top to bottom and as you can see, seems to fixate on odd details. In my case, this just made my picture soooo perfect.

    The drawing seems to be on plain binder type paper. Saskia says Adam generally 'requests' between $15 and $20 dollars. If you have an interest, you can email Saskia at work: saskiar AT ewtc dot org Guess all he needs is a picture (s). I am so pleased. Gerry

    Very nicely done! I think your front wheel is a little rounder though.
    The artist is a friend I assume?

    Now you just need to clean your bike or get this fellow a dirt colored marker.

    Amen. What amazes me is the detail. Note, the face of the rear knobs are worn clean. The lesser contact areas of the tire mirror the dust on the rest of the bike. Saskia said it took Adam two days to finish the drawing. What a gift. As well, years of practice. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    Looks nice but that has to be a helluva bumpy ride with those tires out of round.
    How large is the drawing, and will he copy anything you send him?
