Artist Gianmarco Magnani shares a glimpse into an imagined bike culture. Vintage cafe-racer-era motorcycles and sexy "piloto" fashion mix it up with nice chunky typography, beautiful illustration, and some stunning print-making. "Riders" and "Villains" represent the rivalry between good and the bad; as evidenced from the duct-taped and broken parts on the bikes, these girls take it seriously.
I'm impressed by the deft balance of technical detail and expressive drawing here. Bikes are intricate machines and it'd be so easy to overdo the nuts and bolts (or worse, get the bits all wrong). Just perfect here though. There's a gorgeous attitude to the girls, the clothing, the bikes and liveries.

They will be at the Exploratorium May 27, 2010.
