Tie-Dye Cyclist

While driving home after hearing Indigo Moor (awesome local poet) at the Sacramento Poetry Center on July 1, 2013, I noticed a smooth, efficient cyclist breezing through the lights. I wanted to try and capture the vibe with a sketch. 

 Well past dusk, hot summer night; cyclist smooth, fast, taking smart risks through yellow-red lights. 1970s ten-speed, 1970s tie-dye - neither out-dated that night, he made them in style with flight.
