singapore-based designer thomas yang of 100copies expands upon his cycle-themed posters with his latest series of ‘bikemoji’ art prints. the set of four of portraits are formed by various parts of a bicycle — a wheel, handlebars, seat, pedal — each visually depicting a funny-faced character in a simple, ironic and interesting way. yang chose to depict internet slang words ‘GR8’, ‘OMG’, ‘LOL’ and ‘WTF’, as they are ‘the most commonly used among cyclists.’ each of the posters are limited to, as the name suggests, 100 copies and is stamped and labeled with a unique edition number.

  • I didn’t want to like these as they just seemed too hip. But they’re really good.
