H.G. Wells loves him a bicycle

December 28, 2010 | Filed in:

Just finished creating this papercut this past weekend. A friend of mine wanted to commission a piece for her spouse for the ocassion of Christmas, the pending completion of their house-renovation project, and just love in general. They are both avid bicyclists and love a good story.

This quote from H.G. Wells was part of the request: “Every time I see an adult riding a bicycle, I no longer despair for the future of the human race.” It includes 12 es, 7 rs and is, 6 as, 5 ts, and ns, 4 us and os, 3 ds, hs, fs, ls and cs, 2 ys, gs, ms, and ss, and 1 v, p and b. In case you were wondering.

The bicycle itself comes directly from Talia Lempert’s painting of Goldie.
