Art comes in many, MANY forms. It really isn’t up to one specific person to decide what art entails. That really is what makes art so special. Each one of us can decide, objectively for ourselves what we think art should be or what it actually is. Personally, if you put your heart and soul into something, I think you should be able to consider most things a form of art. Many people would call this ridiculous, it’s not up for them to decide however. Many people simply like being creative. They may not be the most talented, but that still doesn’t take away from what they consider art. A man from Canada named Stephen Lund started doing something pretty unique with his free time. While some people may not consider what he does art, it’s hard to deny that it takes a degree of talent, and a hell of a lot of patience to do what he does. Stephen uses a GPS mapping system that tracks his rides all over Victoria, British Columbia. The tracking system creates red lines that map your riding path. Well Stephen decided to utilize this to create his own unique form of art. He carefully calculates his routes, then uses the tracking system to draw pictures that encompass whole areas of the of the digital map. He uses this activity to get his creative juices flowing, and as a way to de-stress. He averages about 70 Kilometers a day cycling. Check out his cycling creations below!
Wicked Witch of the West Coast (85.9 km, 3 h 24 min). The amount of area these drawings take up are truly
Maze (76.7 km, 3 h 44 min). This one must have taken A LOT of planning. The route would have to exact so as not to screw up this puzzle.
T-Rex missing some teeth (39.4 km, 1 h 43 min). A dinosaur would be one of the first things I would draw.
Queen Victoria (15.7 km, 56 min). Both of them look equally unhappy.
The Mermaid of the Salish Sea (89.7 km, 4 h 13 min). I wonder how he decides what he is going to draw that day?
Darth Vader (46.3 km, 2h 17 min). It wouldn’t be complete without a Star Wars reference. He even had Vader burn his name into the map!
#15 Easter Bunny (75.5 km, 3 h 17 min). I knew the Easter Bunny was big, but I never expected this.
Dopey stegosaurus tramples Fernwood (44.4 km, 1 h 56 min). He is pretty irresponsible with where he puts these dinosaurs. They are wreaking havoc all over the place!
