The finished poster design
This 27×36″ Gallery Print will be on display at the Pedalcraft Show (Monorchid gallery) Friday, October 25th, 6-9 pm. There will also be a very limited amount of 18×24 posters for sale at the event. Proceeds from poster sales help fund local community projects and bike non-profits.
