    I think you mean the Livestrong Foundation hired the artist, not Lance Armstrong himself. Right?

    well according to the Supertouch article Mr. Armstrong has commissioned the artists, i am only going with the information provided. it is kind of a minor point.

    I like the line of chalk dust that’s built up under his work. Kinda frames it.

    Lance is a huge art fan, glad to see he is using it to promote this cause. Actually I was at the Shep fairey show in boston and one of the pieces was on loan from lance’s colletion… unrelated, but i thought that was cool.
