Lest we forget

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Laurence Binyon (1869-1943)

At VeloVoices we have a keen appreciation for anything or anyone who captures the beauty of cycling. The striking work of Maxine Dodd recently caught my eye. I love the energy, movement and atmosphere she creates with a few strokes of the pen and water-colour – an unforgiving medium. Maxine lives in the beautiful Leicestershire countryside where she finds daily inspiration. Here’s her story and a selection of her work which portrays her passion for cycling.

Brave Treve

Hello and good to be back! If there’s one sporting event that marks the transition from Summer into Autumn for me, it’s the great horse race, the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe run at Longchamps near Paris. The race was won by a stunning horse called Treve who stormed through to win in spectacular fashion!  Here are my drawings:

World Champion Wiggins!

Hola! Back in Spain for the World Championship Time Trials. Wonderful setting in Ponferrada, today’s race was all about the contest between three-time champion, Tony Martin and Great Britain’s hero, Sir Bradley Wiggins. I can’t be unbiased here, I’m a huge fan of Sir Bradley and he rode a storming race to take his first World Championship title. With a modest ‘thumbs up’ as he saw his victory confirmed, he also announced that this would be his last time trial. A great way to leave! Go Wiggo! Here are my drawings:
