Chicano Lowrider Guy
posted: August 28, 2006
I've painted a bunch of guys who are part of the loosely knit community of Puerto Rico Schwinn Clubs around New York City, but this is the first portrait I've done of a Chicano lowrider guy.

They're a much younger group than most of the Puerto Rican Schwinn guys and their bikes have twisty-turny handlebars and candy, sparkly paint jobs and huge music systems on the back. I've noticed some of their stylings being adopted by the younger guys in the Puerto Rico Schwinn Clubs lately.

Pretty cool cat, eh?
