It won’t be published anywhere else but here…
I love these Muybridge photos. I know other artists use them as references for their own drawings, but I want to just get a print and frame it as is.
I think it’d work well as a t shirt design. It’s iconic so it’s recognizable, and appealing because it’s familiar. Minimal text, though maybe the font could be more readable? What Would Salvatore Romano do?
Here it is; the 2012 design. As you can see, the run hasn’t even happened yet. We are experiencing the future!!! I don’t even think the shirts have been printed yet.
This year I worked especially close with the 5k Planning Committee, and I have to say it was such a positive experience. They knew exactly what they were looking for, had great feedback and suggestions, and were all around ideal “clients.”
We went for a vibrant color called “Paprika” for the shirt, channeling the color scheme of the Marines Eagle, Globe, and Anchor logo. Instead of the globe representing the Americas, we chose to represent the race course- Beethoven/ Riverside/ Front/ Main. Then of course those are our Concept2 oars.

I’m an ass; I missed a deadline. But I will get this done today! I will post my sketches soon!
