Mint Green Love

posted on: 8.24.2010

I was on my way to pick up my developed film shots, when I saw her. Wendy, the bike that seemed to belong with me (don't judge! I know lots of people who name their stuff). She was cheap, mint green, brown and a cruiser. I've never been so passionate about a bike before. But the woven basket won my heart completely. When I get a job, I want to save up for this bike (just like the story of my best friend's mom: her mother told her she couldn't have a bike because that was for boys. When she got a job, the first thing she did was buy a bike. She is the lady from the first picture). I couldn't stop thinking about how perfect it was, so I decided to draw it. Which reminds me, I haven't sketched in a long time.

Do you have a bike? If so, what are you favorite places to go with it?

  1. cute cute cute!! I want a bike..a cruiser as well! I have a mountain bike, but it's really too small for me, so if I had one, I'd ride it through my neighborhood and over to my grandparent's house which is not far away..I'd probably take it with me and go on bike rides on an island that's about an hour and some from my house..
