The illustrator Kristian Eskild Jensen was drafted in for the project and dreamt up a fantasy world for the series, encorporating well known Danish sights and and fables. Added to the scenes are Larry vs Harry’s favourite musical heroes of yesteryear and characters from cult films, a reference to the brand’s quirky and eccentric tastes.
Larry vs Harry happen to be a Copenhagen-based bicycle brand, makers of the original Bullitt cargo bike. They saw an opportunity to make their large bike and component boxes altogther more interesting by commissioning Kristian to create a fantasyworld.
