chris krigg shows how it should be done when the prancing pony mountain bike boys give up their suspension and their dropper posts, their addiction to wide bars and wrong sized wheels and do cycling as it should be done. *
*in fairness to the fragile egos of certain of the baggy shorted mob it should be pointed out that i'm a rotund fellow of a certain age who conforms to many a mountain bike stereotype (except i don't own an audi, work in i.t., don't need to stop every five minutes and have never, ever had a conversation about tyre suitability). also i should point out that every time chris akrigg is jumping a log or whatever i;d would be variously over the bars, headbutting a tree or otherwise floundering about on my backside.
cyclocross is the business tho.

i was going to be putting some comic art today but when i had a look at the artist's back catalogue it was like a caricature of the treatment of women in comics.
step up then frank quitely to sort this out. for a couple of days only you can see a really good wee documentary about him here. despite my many, many misgivings about illustrators this shows all the reasons why i want to make an illustrated work and also why the form is criminally under-rated as well as (see above) subverting itself at the same time.
if like me, you're not that up for the superhero thing then maybe check out we3. maybe not the best graphic novel i've ever read but an interesting topic an quitely's illustration really does the job
