And the Oscar goes to…

I’ve been watching Oscar’s ceremony as long as I remember myself. It’s my true vice. I never ever miss it, unless there’s an absolute emergency in my life. I watch the Red Carpet and the show. This year I’ve decided to make a few prints/illustrations for the nominees.

Here are the first two – for the Best Actor and Actress in a Leading Role Nominees.

Who do you think will win?

New Project I’m Working on: A Visualization of My Two-Decade Long US Bicycling Experience

MyBikingInfographics-1

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
