20th Anniversary Poster by Mona Caron!

May 23rd, 2012 by hughillustration

The incredible muralista and illustrator Mona Caron has just produced a new poster to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of Critical Mass in September. Check it out! Details on how you can get a copy of the poster are below.


This poster is actually a sequel of sorts. In 2002, she created a now legendary poster for the 10th anniversary, featuring a winged angel bicyclist. This image circulated around the world, was reproduced widely, and many thousand copies of the poster were gifted, sold and collected. Here’s the 2002 version:

People will be coming to San Francisco from Critical Mass rides around the world for the September ride. A small group of us are planning a full week of events to welcome our visitors and to celebrate the start of Critical Mass right here in San Francisco in 1992. (We’ll post details of the events as we have them!) Sales of this and other upcoming posters will be used to fund these activities. If you have questions, want to get involved, or if you are planning your own celebratory event, please get in touch!

Mona’s poster is available in a few options:

• Download a free jpg for your phone or desktop from our Flickr page

• Buy one here!

Posters will be shipped via USPS in a cardboard tube. Shipping is $9 in the US, $17 outside the US. Please note: We will be sending the first shipments in early July! Please be patient.

    I love this poster…albeit I would have loved it more without the child -not that he isn’t cute but having been to CM over the years…I don’t think it’s really a child-friendly event and really depicts what CM is about. (Plus I love art renderings of women – always so gorgeous).

  4. SamanthaG says:

    And to be clear, my feedback is less about CM of (not) being a child-friendly event and more about me liking the poster more without the child. I also would have liked it w/o the child b/c it would have been a lot “cleaner” looking with so much going on in the already awesome poster. Just my two cents.

    Any chance that I can get both the 10th and the 20th Anniversary posters? Thanks!

    Hey there,
    I read in another post that from Chris Carlsson that you do still have a couple dozen of Mona’s 10th anniversary poster, so they’re available to buy on a first-come first-serve basis. He said that we’re supposed to write you an email first to confirm we still have them before you order, and you’ll tell us how to order them.
    So! Are there any 10th anniversary posters left? I’d love to buy one!
    -ash

    No surprises here, the same thing was true ten years ago:

    I thing somebody needs to readjust their misconceptions …
