Mann Mondays

Did you know that we pay homage to David every Monday? Well, we do by using fellow artists tributes and centerfolds from old Easyriders Magazine. David's art influenced many, and we are honored to play a small role in keeping his memory and artwork alive today! Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook and tag #chopperfest if you would like us to showcase your tribute piece like Darren did below.

Today's #mannmonday comes from one of the best in the business Darren McKeag / McKeag Art. Here's Darren's interpretation of David Mann's "Show Off." What a beautiful tribute!

15th Annual Chopper Fest Artwork

We would like to thank the fine folks at Easyriders Magazine and David Mann's family for allowing us to use David's "Pacific Coast Highway" artwork for this year's event. "The Pacific Coast Highway was published in Easyriders Magazine, August 1972. In this illustration camaraderie and power are vividly conceived. Miles of motorcycles create a snake of headlights along the coast of Malibu. Many of Dave's paintings spread new styles throughout the country. Two bikes in front of the pack display stretched frames, and extremely long front ends; a bit of biker style exaggeration." -Easyriders
