The Winnipeg Downtown Biz asked any or all artists to design up to 5 different bike rack designs for one of our famed downtown streets - Broadway. They said they will choose up to 3 different designs and then reproduce them into steel bike racks for placement on Broadway, and perhaps the rest of the city thereafter. They provided templates and asked for simple line drawings. They also asked us to keep "Broadway" in mind for the designs.
What's in it fer moi?
Well, yes, perhaps the chance at having a sketch of mine reproduced in steel and sitting on Broadway appeals to me.... but also the possibility of a $1500 honorarium sounded good to me! Tuition money, mmmm-hmm.
So...who knows if what I thought of is ANYTHING what they want or not, but it was pretty easy [by Sheridan standards] and a grand reward if anything comes of it. Here's the designs I dropped off today.
