Jerry Bowles: Tour Bears Desktop Wallpaper

Words by Morgan Taylor. Illustration by Jerry Bowles.

Last year, when John linked to Jerry Bowles’ Tumblr, I was taken by the Tour Bears series and began using one of his images as my phone background. The other day, I found myself flipping back through Jerry’s work, and sent him a message letting him know how much I liked his stuff – and he offered up a high-res desktop wallpaper to pass on to our readers here.

To download the high-res JPG, right click and save link as – Jerry Bowles – Tour Bears Desktop. As with the Radavist Calendar series, this image is for personal use only!

These days, Jerry’s more active on Instagram than Tumblr. Head on over and give him a follow!

Merckx Mondays

Artist Chris McNally, like many of us have a long withstanding love for Eddy Merckx, his legacy and his bicycles. Maybe not his modern machines, but rather the years of classic racing. Specically, Faema and Molteni.

As part of a giant undertaking, Chris is working on a new watercolor painting project: a bike shop of life experiences both fiction and non-fiction. Inside this gem of a idea will be bikes he’s owned and bikes he’s yet to own. Case in point: a Molteni Merckx…

There’s more to come from this unique undertaking, but for now let’s just appreciate the detail he put into this classic race steed.

Artist Richard Pool brought two of his favorite websites together for a #HardstyleWednesday pose. We’re blushing over here and I’m sure Tracko is too… Check out more of Richard’s work at his Instagram account @alpha_lazer.
