42 Tour de France 2011 Pictures

Testimonials
Preface

Every year I look forward to the World's most prestigious cycling race, The Tour de France.

My summer holiday is adjusted to the Tour de France schedule and the 21 stages.
In 2010 I decided to make a motif inspired by the major events of each stage.
At the stage number 12 I simply could not keep up the pace.
I had to quit the race.

In 2011 I have adjusted my tactics and I start making the motif exactly as the rides cross the finish line.
This year I managed to keep up pace and I stayed in the race all 21 stages.
By arriving in Paris and by finishing on Champs Elyseés I had a great boost.
From the last stage In Paris I made 21 motifs (yes, 21 motifs).




The Motif of Today's Stage
During the evening I finish designing the motif and I upload the motif to online galleries.

First of all to a "manufacturing on demand" on-line gallery,
which means that people all over the world can buy products immediately.
Products are Posters, T-shirts, Ties, Shoes, etc. designed by me using the motif of the stage.




US Postal Stamps
My intention is to distribute US Postal stamps, too.

US Postal insists on the Tour de France owners (ASO) permission due to not infringe ASO's intellectual rights.
Together with The Royal Danish Embassy in Paris I have asked ASO to be granted this permission.




Exhibition in Paris

The Royal Danish Embassy in Paris and I furthermore have considerations concerning exhibiting the motifs in
Paris in size 84 x 59,4 cm (33.1” x 23.4”),
printed in 1 inks on Hahnemühle Canvas Artist Canvas 340 gsm - one of a kind -
and 210 numbered and signed Fine Art prints on Hahnemühle Museum Etching 350gsm Fine Art Paper.

(The Royal Danish Embassy in Paris and I are considering how to present the motif "Renewed Coat of Arms" to the major of Paris.

Author Alain Joannes, Paris compares me to Johan Sebastian Bach:
 
...the composer was organizing motifs melodic and harmonic in an architecture known personally. And one notices a dramatic subjectivity in the organization, apparently neutral, standardized musical figures. Similarly in the work of Asbjorn Lonvig, it takes a singular intent in the layout, in script, rudimentary forms of brightly colored.

Introduction of 21 + 21 motifs
Today I introduce to you the motifs of the Tour de France 2011 stage 1 to 21.
And the 21 "boost"-motifs inspired by Paris.

The 21 "boost"-motifs inspired by Paris, shows the famous buildings and places in Paris.
If you during stage 21 spots famous buildings and places that the field actual did not pass.
Just take it easy.
It is not a figment of imagination on your side.
it is a figment of imagination on my side.

325+ Fine Art Prints
I have selected the best of my motifs. They are for sale as 1 inks on Hahnemühle quality canvas and 210 numbered and signed Fine Art prints on Hahnemühle quality paper. I use IT in every possible aspect of my work. I
love the delicate combination of new and old. I combine the IT based art with the canvas and paper from Germany's eldest in the field, Hahnemühle founded in 1584. Above you see the Hahnemühle Hologram used in the Certificate of Authenticity issued to every print. I have thoroughly researched the IT market in order to achieve the goal: "The World's Best in Fine Art...Nothing less". I have bought equipment to be the ultimate tool to fulfill goal. It offers tools to easily perform calibration and greatly accurate color matching of high pigmented inks. Resulting in sustainability of 100 - 200 years depending on archive methods.
See detailed description of the whole concept.  You might as well read Colorful NEWS covering all Asbjorn Lonvig's new activities.

Highly original derivative, oxymoronic singularity, individually universal, satirical
chutzpah subversive hilarity. I am LOVING LONVIG
