Jase's Bike with Heart is one of my most popular images.
I've made it as prints and t shirts
the drawing originally came from a pre painting study of the bike.
Jase had commissioned a painting of his bike as he was deteriorating from ALS.
He was a great guy, it was a privledge to know him. I wish ALS was curable.
I was so moved by his grace, he is often in my thoughts.
I sat on the drawing for a long time.
years later in the fall after my brother died
my sisters and I texted alot. there were alot of hearts, broken hearts, and love for each other in a hard time.
The image came back to me and I made the heartlike seat into a heart and made a print.
the bike looks so sweet so rough
It felt to me like an homage to hope, hope though loss.
to move forward...
