Here is some of Bryan's biker photography:

I have always wanted a motorcycle.. but went I was younger I wanted a chopper!! I get that passion from my dad. I love that amazing feeling of freedom and "rebelliousness" when you are on a bike!! It's like flying!

Did you know that the word chopper actually come from the post World War 2 era? Yep, In order to make their motorcycle go faster, service mans remove/chop unnecessary parts of their motorcycle. Then they added a longer fork and higher handlebars. Best of all.. custom choppers always have incredible bad ass art work!

When I was 17, I did art work on motorcycle helmets using airbrush and paint. My airbrush pen was a gift from this great tattoo artist from Quebec. He like my paintings and he made me premise that I would never stop doing art. He thought me a lot and he inspired me to always wanna create and to follow my dreams. Few weeks later, I moved from Quebec City to Toronto and I was calling "Jim Davis/Garfield" office asking them if I could work for him! :)
