If you’ve been following my Twitter feed, you may remember Frankenbike, the bike I assembled from parts of other bikes a while back (or attempted to assemble, almost finished, then locked in my basement)? This is its story.

Not the first time I’m drawing a bike jumping, btw. About 18 years ago, I designed a handful of promotional stickers for a bike demo / an environmental festival:

Auftakt Festival, 1993

The image was so successful that I found copies of it all the way to the festival, on posters, flags and brochures. My first encounter with plagiarism and bootleg copies of my stuff. I loved it!
