Human Motorcycles

With The Progressive International Motorcycle Shows coming up, Advanstar Communications Powersports Group wanted to spread the word. They decided to come up with ads to promote the event, using body-painted models, yoga instructors, dancers, and the like to recreate motorcycles. Sketches were drawn up by professional body paint artist, Trina Merry; she then airbrushed paint onto the models’ bodies and posed them together to form a motorcycle shape. Speed TV’s own Erin Bates was the main model, who posed as the rider. To see how the pictures turned out, read Laura Stampler’s article, “These Motorcycles Are Made Out of Humans And Body Paint.”
