In his series Bicycle Boy, Tokyo-based Polish artist Mateusz Urbanowicz follows a day-in-the-life of a boy bicycling to his destination.
Inspired by the animated Studio Ghibli movie Whisper of the Heart, he first created a watercolour illustration which quickly got attention and spread through the Internet. Following this, he decided to make a 10 piece series about the "bicycling-it-hard-boy through his day as he fights to reach his goal".
We love the beautiful brushstrokes and colours. For the technical amongst you, lines are from a 6B pencil and colours are from Schmincke and Winsor & Newton watercolours. As you browse through his work below, you'll wonder what this mysterious Japanese boy is rushing to get to – but all is revealed at the end. Prints of the whole series are available via his Society6 store.
