A Daily Tour de France Poster

There are some people much more ambitious than I am!  For the third year running, New Zealand artist and graphic designer Bruce Doscher is producing a daily poster about the Tour de France linked to that day's stage.  His work is quite good but I am amazed that he can do those so quickly.  For example, the Stage 1 poster shows the breakaway group in their correct team colours.  This stage was only the day before yesteday so it takes some fast pen-wielding.  The posters are available on archival paper for $40 each and a lot of them are clearly inspired by the cycling poster artwork of the past.

Here is the 2012 Stage 1 poster:
