During my morning blog surf (not big surf), I followed a link to "Mac Motorcycles". I use to ride and still like the beauty of some motorcycle forms. I will admit, I loved the energy of my "Plastic Fantastic" but for shear beauty – even standing still – there is little that compares with some of the custom and small shop machines. I clicked around the images of the four machines on the Mac Motorcycles website and found some sketches.
Just as with the real machine, the sketches are something to look at. My taste in art is much like any interest, I prefer simplicity to extravagance. It’s one of the reasons that "sketches" are one of the most interesting for me. A good sketch shows more of the artist than a finished piece. It leaves just a bit more to the viewer – both to fill in the blanks but also to get a hint of the artist "in action".
A beautiful motorcycle lets you imagine the feel, the weight, the rush of what it might be like to ride. A great motorcycle lets you dream. Sketches are no different.
