Johnny of HSUPER designed our team Icons in his own unique style to represent The 5th Floor NYC in a more relaxed way than formal team portraits. Expect to see these on the riders bios that will launch on the team section of the site soon, troche for now try and work out whose who.
Artist and Illustrator Simon Roy was kind enough to hand furnish our team pages with these new incredible landing images. We caught up with Simon to find out about his journey and relationship with cycling;
I am from Montreal Canada, hospital I am not a professional artist but I have been drawing my whole life. I have been a runner for a couple of years before I turned to cycling and I am very happy I did. When I was younger I was always drawing stuff (cars, clothing, shoes etc..) my dad was a cyclist but I never was interested to it. I started to post drawings on instagram for the #oneoftheseplease contest from rapha. I was impressed to see how much people liked my art and I won the contest. Some people even asked me if they could buy prints of my drawings. I cant believe it.
I had the pleasure of meeting and working with Chris and Dolly, pharm the guys from Grand Boucle, when they were in London few months back and I have to say, their prints are very very well made, curated to the smallest detail.
