This is a painting of Anja, a Swiss bike messenger who came to New York in 2005 for the Cycle Messenger World Championships. The CMWC is essentially a bike messenger Olympics, with hundreds of bike messengers from dozens of cities around the world. It features all kinds of competitions (various messenger-themed bike races, a tattoo contest, arm wrestling, art show, etc.), and has been held in cities all around the world since 1993.
Sometimes I paint little head people, too.
