Rush Hour Race


Which is faster- car, MBTA, or bicycle? Come to Union Square Tuesday evening to see the result in the annual Rush Hour Race. There are two extra awesome things about this event:

  • Unlike so many bike events, this one does not require you to wake up super early
  • Because of the unique evening timing (and beer) I will be at this event. I will have a pop-up shop there with lots of stuff like my book on how to bike. Please say hi.

So come out, say hello, buy my book, get yourself a beer, enter a raffle.

Rush Hour Race
Union Square Plaza
Somerville, MA
5:30pm – 9pm (my pop-up shop will be there until 8.)

New Mini-Comic Book: Bike There


Announcing the first Bikeyface book, Bike ThereBike There is a 24 page mini-comic on how to bike around a city. The mini-comic is an introduction to transportation bicycling that was inspired by this original post for bike curious and new bicyclists (as well as any other bicyclists who love to laugh, bike, and share the lifestyle.)


The comic contains some illustrations that have appeared online as well as new ones. All illustrations have been updated and rendered in full color. And while there are many bicycling guides out there, Bike There is a little more humorous and a little less stuffy. You can get it here!


I’ll be at MICE! Oct 4th & 5th


In just over a week, I will be at MICE (Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo) in Cambridge, MA. But adding to the excitement, I will be debuting the first Bikeyface BOOK at MICE! (Well it’s technically a mini-comic but still a book-shaped object with multiple pages with pictures on them.) The book will be available first at MICE, so if you’re in the Boston area you should stop by. Also check out some other amazing artists and workshops while you’re there:

MICE 2014
Saturday October 4th, 10am – 6pm
Sunday,  October 5th, 11am – 4pm
University Hall at Lesley University
1815 Massachusetts Ave (Porter Sqare)
Cambridge, MA
Free Admission! Panels, workshops and exhibition are free and open to the public.

Then after checking out MICE, go get some ramen (if you can.)


Did you bike?

You’re probably tired of the question because of course you did.

When the bike question is not asked you know people assume you drove- especially the vocal few who fight bike lanes to preserve car parking for customers.  So when you shop, put your groceries in this bag, new in the Bikeyface store:

“Yes I Biked” canvas bag in the Poppy color

The artwork is printed on to a BAGGU Duck Bag made with 100% 16 oz. recycled cotton canvas with durable taped seams and matte silver hardware. The bag is very, strong, high quality and great for carrying things or folded up out of sight. I selected this bag because I’ve been using one for shopping for several years now.

One of it’s great practical features are the short handles that make it easy to carry by hand:

“Yes I Biked” canvas bag in poppy color, now available in the Bikeyface store!

It also has an adjustable shoulder strap that can makes it easy to carry or wear as cross-body bag if your basket or panniers are already full. Inside you will find a pocket for your keys and phone. Also, both the bag & pocket snap shut.

So head on over to the store to check it out. Buy soon! There is limited stock on this.

Open Studio, May 3 & 4th


May 3rd & 4th, I’ll be participating in Somerville Open Studios this weekend along with 400 other artist in the city- a large enough event to warrant a continuously operating trolley to carry you around. (Or you could just bike.) I’ll have posters, framed prints, t-shirts. Stop by and say hello!

May 3rd & 4th, 12-6pm

March 30th: TEDxSomerville


I will be giving a TEDx talk at TEDxSomerville On March 30th.

TEDxSomerville is a day-long event celebrating the exciting ideas, art, initiatives, inventions, community, and other Movements that relate to and spring from Somerville. This year, the theme is “Movement.” Speakers, artists and musicians from around the community will share their passions, talents and ideas with a diverse group of attendees.

TEDxSomerville is taking place at Brooklyn Boulders at 12A Tyler Street, in Somerville (of course). Tickets are now on sale.

New: Fine Art Color Prints


New in the Bikeyface store are several color 8×10″ fine art prints. All are archival and printed on 100% cotton rag paper with a matte finish. Both the paper and the color quality has a lovely watercolor feel.


The images have been taken from past posts and been updated and colorized. I hope to add more images periodically.
