Here’s the full version of the animated gif I created, the shorter version of which you saw here. Each city has the color of my perception, of how I personally feel about the city, be it New York or San Francisco, Berlin or Paris. I hope you’d enjoy it!
London, Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires – sky is the limit for a bicyclist!
Here’s a little promo I did for my blog Bikeholic, featuring four of some of my favorite cities in the world – New York City, Paris, Berlin, Buenos Aires, and London. This is a short version, the longer version is coming up that will also feature Moscow and San Francisco. And these are just a few places where I biked. I’ll be adding some more, but, as of today, here’s a preview of what to expect:
All of the illustration is done by me. The colors of the cities and the “moods” reflect my own feelings about and the way I view these particular locations.
I’ve been bicycling as long as I remember myself. When I moved to USA more than two decades ago, I continued to bicycle. I bicycled in all of the cities I lived and/or visited: from Moscow, Paris and Göttingen to LA, SF, DC, and NYC. At the end of 2014, I decided to retrieve from my memory the bicycling experience I’ve had in the past 20 years and visualize it with supportive information of the overall bicyclng statistics. I chose to visualize both funny & important information gathered via multiple sources, as well as from my own experience.
In these series I’ll be visualizing funny aspects of the bicycling communities as well, which would include my own illustrations, infographics and other graphical executions. I’ll be only borrowing the legitimate data collected by respected sources.
In this first page that you see here, for example, I’m giving a summary of my bicyclng experience per city/town I lived in and what this experience was like: from very bike friendly places to not so friendly and why. Enjoy and share and encourage people to choose bicycling as a lifestyle and/olr way to be fit and healthy.
I’ll be posting individual pages as I make them on my blog dedicated to the bicycling culture here: http://bikeholic.tumblr.com
