See, I'm curently working on a little "art project". I am drawing as many riders as I can based on their nicknames.
However, I kinda need you guys' help, since I can't remember all of said nicknames. I'm only going for something that tangible (after all; how do you draw a "Wiggo"?, and I'm sticking to currently active riders on World Tour Teams.
So far I've got:
Cannonball = Cavendish
Tank (Panzerwagen) = T. Martin
Tornado = Boonen
Shark = Nibali
Cigar (That is was 'El Purito' means, right?) = Rodriguez
Pistol (El Pistolero) = Contador
Little Prince (Il Piccolo Principe) = Cunego
As well as some where I know the nickname but needs to figure out how to represent them:
Honey Badger = Navardauskas
Bull = Hoogerland
Ox = Chris Anker
(The last two is simply a matter of 'how to tell them apart?')
Did that make sense?

And a puppy!The rainbows are cute. All it's missing is a couple of unicorns. And a fish.
It can only be kitsch if it's aiming not to be kitsch and that looks like it's aiming for kitsch via Hokusai, even if it did forget the unicorns.And a puppy!
If you look closely enough it is a bit kitschy (kitsch can be an artform of its own if well executed), but at first glance I just enjoy the general spirit of it all. (Especially the apparent Moses-like parting of the seas... there's just so much to unpack here.)
