Self portrait as part of my Mountain Bike cartoon series. Bicycling is supposed to be fun- it's all about being a kid again.

This did not start as a selfie, but when it was done there was no denying the similarity, though I couldn't quite get the eyes right, hmmm. Bicycling is supposed to be fun- it's all about being a kid again, that's why I keep doing it and painting these whimsical cartoons. If these help anyone to relax and stop taking their riding too seriously (or themselves for that matter, including me;-), then my job is done.
