Bike Art

Postby DCR00 » Wed Oct 03, 2012 20:16 pm

Evening all

In the process of buying a new place. Fortunate enough to have enough space for a dedicated office (much needed now that i work from home pretty much 99% of the time).

Whilst Mrs DCR has control over the decor (in exchange for ownership of the garage), i want some art for my office.

I came across this purely by accident on eBay and quiet like it

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370627708742? ... 582wt_1271

However, it sounds a bit cheap.

Anyone know of anywhere else i could try ? i have had a quick hunt on Google, but nothing grabs me as yet

Thought maybe such keen MTB fans would potentially have some art already and could recommend somewhere

Cheers

DCR

It's probably cheap because it's ugly, and just a little bit gay.

Super gay!

and also because it's 8 sheets of A3, not the massive one shown in the pics.

Er right - the one in the pic has big lines down it so it's pretty clear. Still ugly and gay though, either way.

I know that you mong. I meant that the individual pics in the photo are bigger than A3, either that or it's a tiny tiny sofa.

Thanks for your input ladies

I thought you were meant to be nice in the Hub, thank f*ck i didnt post this in the Crud.

What's gay about it ? is it because its a bloke on the bike and not a scantily clad vixen (or Sheeps Mum in both your cases) ?

This is us being nice.

and yes, it's mostly because it's a picture of a man, who happens to be on a bike with some scenery in the background.

If you're going to have a massive picture like that, it should be some epic scenery or something. Having a huge picture of some man on your wall is....... gay.

Or go for the pic of sheeps mum, I can send you some if you like.

You could get your own image & get it printed on one big poster A0 (8x A3) somewhere like this: http://www.easyposters.co.uk it will work out a bit more expensive, but the quality is great (we use them at work) and its your choice of image, plus it's one poster as opposed to fannying around with 8 bits.
A berm? were you expecting one?

Having an A0 picture of yourself on the wall is even gheyer than having a picture of some other dude.

Or you could just accept your sexuality and admit to your love of show tunes and Judy Garland. We'll keep it quiet and away from Crudcatcher until after you've told your parents/wife/girlfriend/favourite inflatable toy.

And for that price you could have the real Sheeps Mum on your wall.

I did, until the wife found the girlfriend's phone number and they both dumped me.

(Dumped as in very expensive, messy divorce).

Stick to inflatable, it's cheaper.

For biking images try Pink Bike. There are lots of professional quality pictures from all kinds of styles of biking. From Epic mountain scenes with a ribbon of single track to gnar core down hill racing photos. Ask the owner for permission to use his/her photo, some will let you have for free.

Then take the picture and use one of the many poster printing services available to print it out.






... oh and stop being gay.

That's all well and good, but unless you're planning on letting us all have a go on your missus it's unlikely anyone else would be able to produce such artwork.
