Yorkshire Cyclists greeting cards now available

Ilkley_Haworth_Hebden Bridge Harrogate_Otley_LeedsPennine Cyclists_Two Cyclists Harrogate cardI now have a set of 14 beautiful greeting cards with my Yorkshire Cyclists images on. Like my coasters and prints, each card depicts cyclists on the Tour de France route.  I’ve chosen a high quality recycled textured card and a matt finish.  They have been printed by the fantastic Imaging Centre and although I say it myself they are pretty gorgeous.  They are now available in many of the galleries and shops that supply my work and also online.

The 14 images comprises 6 images of each of the two Yorkshire days of the race and 2 generic images:

  • Leeds
  • Harewood House
  • Otley
  • Ilkley
  • Skipton
  • Harrogate
  • York
  • Haworth
  • Hebden Bridge
  • Cragg Vale
  • Huddersfield
  • Sheffield
  • Pennine Cyclists
  • Yorkshire Cyclists

Yorkshire Cyclist prints now available

I’ve been on a bit of a journey over the last few weeks learning about printing and framing.  I’ve learnt that gilcee printing is fade resistant and considered to produce the best results.  I’ve learnt about conservation grade mounts that don’t discolour or damage your prints as they age and I’ve learnt it is much easier to get your original colours on paper than it is on glass.  So, here to accompany my glass collection are my first Yorkshire Cyclist prints.

Each print is 15″ square including the mount and the actual image is 8.5″ square.

Otley joins my Yorkshire Cyclist Collection

OtleyI am having so much fun drawing my cyclist images and trying to represent local towns from my personal perspective as a cyclist.  Latest to the add to the collection is Otley a popular cafe stop location on several of my favourite cycling routes.  The first coasters with this image on are just out of the kiln and on their way to my current stockist.

Inspired by Tour de France … Le Tour Yorkshire

As a passionate cyclist I am over the moon to hear that the Tour de France is virtually passing my front door next year.  I regularly cycle up Cragg Vale (the longest continuous gradient in England – 968 feet over 5.5 miles) and usually my head is full of glass.  Now I spend my time trying to work out the perfect spot to sit and watch le Tour pass by.  Inspired by this I have begun to work on designs that represent this exciting event.

I plan to make a range of coasters, keyrings and cufflinks with representing cyclists passing through the Tour route.  I hope to cover all the major landmarks on route.  The first two are pictured below and will be on sale in Hebden Bridge and Halifax within a fortnight.  I am currently working on Leeds, Ilkley, Skipton and Hawes.
