Handsome Holsters and Handlebars

This fantastic Cowboy Biker sketch was created by Tina Sweep, and finished elegantly by Michael Hoeweler!

Michael Hoeweler Final

Tina Sweep

Michael Hoeweler is from a small, rural-yet-suburban area outside of Cincinnati, Ohio. He left the cornfields and bucolic landscape behind for Baltimore, Maryland, where he graduated with a BFA in illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art. The eastern seashore has treated him well, and he's made his way up from Baltimore to New York City, where he currently lives and works. His interests lie in art and design, fashion, music, culture, social theory and the great American landscape.

See Michael's website, blog, and tumblr!


  1. Wow, I love the final! The soft grey tones have a lovely dated feel. Excellent updates to the bike as well with the fenders, platform bike pedal and step-thru frame. He's one stylish gent. :)

  2. Thanks guys! Tina, your drawing was a fun one to work with, bikes are not something I draw quite often! And that boy was so dapper, I really couldn't change him that much!
