As a tribute to the winners of the Tour de France, I have produced an art print called, ‘le tour des Merveilles’. This is a visual tribute to the Tour, using the iconic periodic table as the framework. My father is very keen cyclist (it’s his bike in the main photo), so cycling has always been part of my life. The print show every winner of the Tour de France, with distance covered and average speed. I used colours based on a beautiful Parisian poster from Meteore the bicycle manufacture.
I can personalise the prints by including an addition cell to include information about the client or recipient.
The response from the cycling community has been wonderful, I have been amazed at what a friendly, positive and always supportive lot the cycling community are . At the moment I am finishing the Giro D’Italia print. I have also been asked to produce a Giro Donne print. I will be updating the Tour de France print when the current tour finishes, with the 2012 Tour winner. I’m always open to new ideas so if the Podium Cafe readers have any suggestions I would ’d to hear them!
