These images were for a running magazine’s article on cheating in marathon running. It was really interesting to see how people cheated to win – I couldn’t believe it. Taking shortcuts, wearing more than one set of numbers, etc. I wanted these images to look very analog and sketchy to suit the article’s nefarious nature. As with a lot of magazines there was a small budget and a short timeline, so I’ve been developing a style that while still being interesting, it can be done quickly.

He said it was all about being able to produce work faster, thus being able to make a better living off of the work.
