Last month, I received an invitation from Colossal and The Chicago Museum of Design to create a poster about bicycles. The show, aptly called Chain Reaction: Posters About Bikes, celebrates the culture and history of bicycles. The international exhibition is in conjunction with the museum’s winter show, Keep Moving: Designing Chicago’s Bicycle Culture.

Because Colossal is one of my favorite blogs, I immediately say yes. What made it even more appealing are a couple of things:

A. The Cause
The prints are available for purchase and part of each sale will benefit Blackstone Bicycle Works, a community bike shop and youth education program that provides educational and vocational opportunities for some of Chicago’s most underserved neighborhoods.

B. The Company
The exhibition features original limited-edition prints created exclusively for the occasion by some of my favorite local, national, and international artists, illustrators, and designers including: Arna Miller, Alex Senna, Ovadia Benishu, Lisa Congdon, Fran Labuschagne, Jay Ryan, Eleni Debo, Mara Piccione, Janice Chang, Vance Lump, Lydia Fu, JW and Melissa Buchanan, Brent Couchman, Mart Aire, Daniel Jamie Williams, and yours truly.

Starting today, prints are available for purchase at Design Museum Chicago’s Block 37 location. Not in Chicago? No worries you can get your print online at the Colossal Shop.

Below are some of my favorites. Check them out!
