    Oakland has a vibrant, tight-knit cycling community, and I’ve seen first-hand how passionately people can feel about their bikes. Sadly, I’m still too much of a novice to feel the same. These illustrations and images are part of new project by Stan Engelbrecht & Nic Grobler titled Bicycle Portraits. It’s a study of South African commuter culture: the people, their bikes and the ground they travel every day. Stan & Nic have culled the best 165 portraits to be part of a series of three books, which will also include stories, essays and hand-painted watercolor maps (shown above) to indicate the location of each portrait. I’ve already spent some time enjoying the photographs on the site, and from what I can tell, the books, designed by Gabrielle Guy, will be beautiful objects in their own right. It’s an inspiring project, and I hope to see it in print! You can learn more about it here, and if you’d like to help fund this project, you can visit their Kickstarter page. — Kate

watercolor! Think poche. Instead of different values in watercolor use different line weights for in filling with poche to create depth.

would love a watercolor of this for my home. I can look at this all day. Can almost smell the rain.

This would make a beautiful wallpaper/accent wall!
