The Brooklyn piece was created as part of our “Cycling Series”, which features (10) American cities that have a prominent cycling subculture.
This series is a visual journey along some of the country's most popular cycling routes. Illustrating some of the country’s most beautiful places, this is a different take on the phrase "Map Your Ride".
Inspired by a friend (who is an avid cyclist) back in 2014, this series began because I thought it would be a fun way to add in additional meaning to my work. The series is done so that each piece has the real-life cycling routes drawn in to give an extra layer of meaning to the work so that people can see their daily journeys.
Brooklyn was chosen because it is known for being one of the busiest cycling areas in the country. In fact, in some areas, it seems like there are more cyclists than there are motorists. New Yorkers are opting-in for this lifestyle for some obvious benefits: the exercise, lower out-of-pocket costs, and less of that “feeling like a sardine in a tin can” feeling you get when on the NYC trains.
This was one of my favorite pieces to draw. The density of the population paired with the proximity to the Atlantic Ocean made a great artistic composition. Plus, it is a fun area of New York and one of my favorite places to visit.
The illustration I made includes the entire Brooklyn peninsula, South of the Manhattan Bridge. Includes Brooklyn Heights, Red Hook, Crown Heights, Brownsville, Bushwick, Sunset Park, Borough Park, Flatbush, Flatlands, Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Gravesend, Sheepshead Bay, Brighton Beach, Manhattan Beach, Marine Park, Bergen Beach, and Canarsie. On the far left, the Verranzano-Narrows Bridge is shown crossing over to parts of Fort Wadsworth. At the bottom right, the Marine Parkway Bridge is shown crossing over to parts of Rockaway Point. The only Brooklyn neighborhoods not included are Greenpoint and Williamsburg.

Each one of our pieces is created by developing a series of hand-drawn layers, with its own intended purpose for the whole. Each layer is a sketch, painting or drawing that is made independently, using various artistic mediums in a way that makes it compliment the other layers. These layers are then digitally combined to make a single final piece. The final piece is then produced as a high-quality print on paper or canvas.
