Cycling News in drawings

09 Apr 2019 15:22

Hello people
Since the start of this season I've been making drawings covering some of the biggest races. I thought it'd be fun to share them here. I usually upload them to an instagram account --> http://www.instagram.com/ettekop where I write a personal summary of the race in question as well. If some of you are interested and are not on instagram I can upload them each time on the forum as well.
Underneath some examples :D

And I think the real question is; why was Stybar attacking van Avermaet with a frog?

That proves that there are still characters in today's cycling.

Hmm... do you do the women's races as well? And - perhaps more importantly - are you open for suggestions?
Coz I'd really like to know what you'd make of Uttrup's rather interesting post-Flanders interview.

He actually teased him with that stuffed frog he got as a prize at the podium ceremony. I thought it was quite funny :D

I know he did.
That still doesn't answer the question of "Why?"

He wasn't teasing him, it was a kiss from the frog.
Frog - Prince, E3 - De Ronde... Fairy tale motives, as already mentioned.

Glad you like the drawings!
Yeah i saw her interview, it made it to a Belgian cycling-talkshow which is broadcasted on a government funded television centre, it was very cute haha.
I thought of covering women's races and focus on more unknown but promosing races like Tour de Rwanda as well!

Fantastic work.
Hard to pick a favourite, but Tour de Colombia is outstanding. Love the Sky guy.

Those are cool. I think they are good enough you could consider putting them together and trying to get published in a book type of thing. I have a Tour de France adult coloring book and these are could easily be a 2019 book.
