More Bilenky cargo bike goodness….

I just got this pic from the folks at Bilenky who got the pic from the guy that does their handpainted signs. I think it looks awesome!


I really wanted a sign that felt handpainted and classic because I think it reflects my personality and images as a photographer. I’m really down to earth with my subjects and clients and I believe in making quality images with simple equipment without a big dog and pony show.

Anyway, here was my crude rendering of what I was envisioning. I definitely think the painter did an awesome job in interpreting my idea, making it his own and creating a killer sign!

I can’t wait to get it. One reason is because the coroplast signs I have for my Xtra are getting really worn and are starting to look a little hobo-ish. This sign should last longer and will allow me to pimp my services WHILE hauling gear. Whereas, with the Xtra, I couldn’t really carry too much while riding with the billboards.

    That is starting to really shape up nicely…I’m really looking forward to the frame build-up and how it handles.

    If you lived here in Florida, I’d guess you were a Gators fan, but I know better…

    Looks pretty damn good.

    But, if it were me, I’d carve something up out of wood for a sign.
