Originally this was a promotional postcard I made in February of 2007 and its concept was no more complex than “I can make a camera and make it intrude on whoever receives it.” And then it dutifully stared at whoever received it, became a personal favourite, and was turned into this silkscreened print.
Although we always try to have this print in stock, please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery in case we need to special order it in. Thank you!

Sometimes there's just not too much to an illustration. This one's just a simple distillation of a bicycle into basic lines and shapes.

Personal work by Raymond Biesinger from 2011. Printed in an open edition via Epson Stylus Pro 3880 at 22x15" on Epson Ultra Premium 192 GSM Enhanced Matte paper. Dimensions include an approximate 1.5" margin. Signed and dated.
This was originally made for the cover of the Fall 2010 issue of Soma, a magazine published by Sweden’s largest hospital. Astonishingly, they had an experienced and cheerful art director (Olof Heldin) and a generous art budget. Only in Sweden, I think? This issue’s theme: cancer. The texture on the lobster's claws is collaged from photos Raymond took of the brick vaulted ceilings of the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, and other textures in the piece were derived from photos he’d taken of picture frames and escalator steps.
