- My friend Mike gave me the idea for this drawing. Here’s his take on it:
- “The Look,” which took place in the 2001 Tour de France, is when Lance Armstrong looked back directly at Jan Ulrich on the steepest pitches of Alpe d’Huez before viciously accelerating and dropping the field. I imagine this is what Lance saw when he looked back at Jan Ulrich. He didn’t see a human. He saw a machine that was built and cultivated through a European cycling culture that was steeped in the usage of performance enhancing drugs. In this image, Jan is represented as an actual “machine”. Something to be feared, something that could possibly explain what Lance felt and could in some small way perhaps justify the extraordinary lengths he went to in becoming a seven time winner of the Tour de France. -My friend Mike
- Signed and numbered; printed locally (to me, at least) in Orlando, FL with archival, acid-free ink on archival, acid-free paper, so this giclée print is sure to outlive your interest in it.
- The print size options correspond to common frame sizes, so you can just plop your print right in a frame, no need to mat it.
