Thriving Concern / Dan Ibarra
Self-Portrait of A Bike Commuter
The goal with this poster was to create the simplest, most human symbol of the democracy of the bicycle. I don’t really care about the fetish of the bicycle itself. For me, the beauty and potency of a bicycle is how this simple, self-powered tool elevates and embraces our humanity, asking for little in return except two strong legs.SPECS
