James McLean is an Art Director at Bensimon Byrne.
He’s completely obsessed with cycling and design.
All of his prints are 16x24. Signed and numbered are limited to 10 prints. Accompanying each print is a signed letter of authenticity describing the race, the bike and the athlete.
The art: Each piece of Legends of Cycling collection is illustrated from a blank canvas using Adobe Illustrator. Each artwork is preceded by a lengthy research process to ensure the accuracy. The research consists of first finding the correct bike that was ridden in the race that helped propel the rider and bike into legendary status. The paint scheme and components are found based on race footage and photography. One of the best ways to have the accuracy verified is to actually involve the actual rider in on the piece. This has been done on a number of pieces with thanks going to Steve Bauer, Alex Steida, and Michael Barry.
