light pink and ruby red cycling cap with koinobori design Koinobori cycling cap - pink

Koinobori cycling cap – pink

Posted in Bicycle, Illustration, Product

Since the grey / green version of this cap was limited to 100 copies and I was already almost sold out, I decided to do a reprint in a new color combination.

white base color for shiny teeth

A good occasion to fix some minor bugs in the design, too. I opted for light pink as a base color for most of the panels – flipped up visor fabric stays white to get some nice and fresh teeth –  and chose ruby red for the printing ink. For some reason this time the ink has a much more rubber-like texture and rather „stands“ on the fabric than being absorbed by it. Not a bad effect and since only the visor is covered with a lot of ink that might block transpiration, there won’t be a problem when it’s getting hot.

more rubberish ink with this run

This run of caps is also limited to 100 copies and I already have a different design in mind, so if these are gone, they are gone …
