Marco Simoncelli 1987-2011

Ciao Marco – Marco Simoncelli remembered

On October 23rd, during lap 2 of the 2011 Malaysian Grand Prix, Italian rider Marco Simoncelli suffered a terrible, and fatal accident. Simoncelli rode with passion and exuberance, and together with his wild long hair and positive attitude became a firm favourite to many motorcycling fans around the world. I’ll miss watching him riding, and will no longer be able to urge him on to win his first MotoGP race.

My illustrated poster is a remembrance and personal tribute to a talented and charismatic young rider, who will be greatly missed. This piece was completed in Adobe Photoshop, using charcoal and watercolour brushes, and the logo was created in Illustrator.

Ciao Marco – RIP.
