bicycle portraits

Yesterday I had a minor bike incident with a pedestrian ( i swear it wasn't my fault). When I came home I was browsing the webs for an image that resembled my little crash and I stumbled upon the great work of Taliah Lempert . She is apparently the go-to for custom bicycle portraiture. I think a bespoke bike painting would be the most considerate/appreciated gift for a bicycle enthusiast. Where as I'm obviously more inclined for a pet painting I know many kids who treat their bikes like babies.

Love them, want one. I miss my bike, as I ride like mad on vacation but not so much at home.

Bike prints / illustrations seem to be popping up everywhere... thought I'd add to your list:

Both of these would be my "Go To" bike prints.
