All Humans Are Welcome Here!

Category : bikes

I’ve been on bikes from a very young age but my passion exploded in 2004 when I got swept away in Portland’s burgeoning cycling scene and cyclocross racing. I raced for a few years, went on several long tours, and built an independent business around my passion: Little Package Cycling Caps. In my opinion, bikes are freedom and bikes are fun. I hope you ride one!

Bikini Cross – Where it All Started

Some people thought this was un-feminist of me, not classy, etc. The rest of us were just having a real good time. Wage FUN, Portland! #sscxwc, much latergram 2007 (photo via @unnskyldmeg, credit @cxmagazine) This was a time I was working on becoming less shy and consciously forcing myself out of my shell by doing… continue reading

There’s a road all the way to the summit of White Mountain (14,246ft), which makes it by far the easiest 14er summit in California (or perhaps anywhere in the USA). From what I understand, once a year the final 7 miles of chunky road even opens for the general public to drive past the gate!… continue reading

Velocipede Races Cover

This time last year I was reading a quick and fun book by Emily June Street called The Velocipede Races, preparing to illustrate its cover. The book centers around a young woman’s passion for cycling, is tinged with steampunky Victoriana, and is also digestibly feminist. In short, I totally enjoyed it and had no trouble… continue reading

Fog rolled in today, not so good for painting. So, another day without a door. And ya know, fog means cold. I got a tarp for a door.

Bikes in Space Illustration

In May, the bigger-than-a-zine zine Bikes in Space 2 came out of the prolific Elly Blue Publishing house. I was honored and quite thrilled to be the cover illustrator — especially once I saw it in print. So cool! It was my first book cover, ever! Kind of a wacky little thing, but it was… continue reading

This Cap Was Perfect

I got this great letter from a customer of mine who loved his Little Package cap. I got many letters like this over the years, and wanted to share this one to share the love! I love getting letters like this. Getting them now that I’m done making caps is a little sad, but that’s… continue reading

PCT Gear Review

I was really comfortable with my gear along the Pacific Crest Trail, so I thought I would share it with you, and explain why it worked. Please note beforehand that I purchased all these items with my own money after carefully researching them, and was not given anything for review. The following are my opinions.m... continue reading

Bike Craft 2012

It’s getting busy in my studio but I had to take a minute aside to let everyone know Little Package will be at the Bike Craft fair this year. This will be the 5th or 6th time I’ve tabled at this wonderful, homegrown Portland event, and as always, I’m looking forward to it. It’s so… continue reading

Thanks, Friends

I carved this linocut to hand-make Thank You cards for the friends who helped me when I broke my collarbone August 13th. It was amazing–but unsurprising–how many great people stepped forward and what generous things they offered. I was given slings, food, pain pills, rides, good company, liniments, massages, household help, help bathing and dressing,… continue reading
