Catching up with Sacha White

Met with Sacha (the man behind Vanilla Bicycles) today to talk about a project we’re working on and he mentioned some very cool news.

First, he’s commissioned Dan Gillsdorf of Atlas Tattoo to design the first-ever, limited edition Vanilla Bicycles poster. I didn’t see the sketches, but Sacha says it will be in the style of a vintage, art-nouveau advertisement and will feature his wife and daughter riding on their Vanilla stepthrough city bike with the cityscape in the background and something about a flock of swallows flying around. Sounded very cool.

You can bet this will be a stunning work of art and he hopes to have them printed up in time for the holidays. I’ll post a sketch or the final design soon.

He also mentioned he’d like to take part in the BikeCraft Faire coming up on December 7th! I was stoked to hear this and we haven’t finalized it yet, but he wants to share his craft of framebuilding with everyone. He’s talking about a display that shows the craftsmanship behind building a bike frame. Sacha would be a perfect addition to the talented Portland artists already on the list.

[…] Back in November, I posted about a poster that Sacha White of Vanilla Bicycles was creating with local artist Dan Gillsdorf. Now that the print is finally done, I’ve been waiting for Sacha’s permission to publish more details. After first offering it to Vanilla owners, he has given me the green light to share the details with a wider audience. […]
