The purpose of The Imprint Project is to grasp a deeper understanding of the worldwide cultural foundations for the sport of BMX through the eyes of the sport’s current day iconic photographers.
BMX changes so quickly. Just when you think your bike looks the part and things are never going to change, a new trend pops up. A lot of Bob Haro's drawings are from way back so seeing new illustrations pop up with modern geometry, parts, helmets and clothing is always a treat. You know what, this one even came out in colour! Troy Lee Design helmet, Ikonix number plate, Oakley goggles and gloves and (correct me if I'm wrong) Fly clip shoes. A lot of details are put into this drawing which makes it so good.
Here's Bob's description of the new illustration: "New artwork in color. Classic BMX artwork, hand drawn, digitized then finished w Adobe Illustrator and photoshop. Fun to merge my classic art with new technology. Enjoy.
With a bit of luck we'll have Bob involved in a future project. Stay tuned for that one.
