Cycling Patch

MY PROJECT
I decided to pursue a cycling/outdoors theme since cycling season is on the brink of restarting. My inspiration comes via the Velominati, a group upholding the simple truths of cycling etiquette. The Rules, created by the Velominati, are a comprehensive list of said cycling etiquette. I'll be using Rule #6 as my theme: Free Your Mind and Your Legs Will Follow.

Favorite Reference Patches
I've been compiling a pinterest board of patches for awhile now. There's a good variety of styles here that provide for a lot of good inspiration. You can check it out here!

Favorite Apple Metal Patch
Recently watched the entire series of Sons of Anarchy and have a strange obsession with motorcycle club culture now. So naturally, I was drawn to this one...

Rough Sketches
Worked on a few sketches, but landed on three I felt had enough potential to further design.

Initial Patch Designs
Spent some buildling out the designs from my three sketches. Going to pick one to finesse and make as my final design.

Final Patch Design
After receiving some feedback from Jon and other peers, I went forward with polishing the first circle patch. I wanted to further expand some of the cycling concepts and elements in the design. I worked with a lot of shapes and pen lines to create the final design. I'm happy with how this final version turned out.
