Marathon Drawing

The good folks at Runners World magazine have given me several great assignments recently, but this drawing may be the most complicated assignment I’ve ever tried to pull off!

For their magazine opener, Design Director Kory Kennedy and his editors envisioned a Where's Waldo-type dissection of a marathon race day. They had 40 specific scenarios for me to draw in the spread, everything from porta-potty etiquette to photo-finishes. After a few style explorations, we decided to go with a clear, almost European comic style (I even threw a grown-up Tin Tin into the race for fun)
