Running magazine Like The Wind commissioned me to create a piece for the 3rd issue of their magazine. I decided to illustrate the team of men who ran the first sub 4 minute mile, Christopher Brasher, Christopher Chataway and Roger Bannister. This group of men define a moment and an age in running. I've not run for long, so when I was asked to create something that speaks to me about running it had to be these three men, in my head this is where everything starts. The choice to draw all three was never in question, when you watch the footage of that day and see how much each man put into that record breaking run you see how much of a team effort it was. Without one of them it wouldn't have been possible.
