New York Times :: Secrets Of Endurance - Eating To Go

This piece ran yesterday in the Times 'Style' section. The article addressed the need to manage your calorie & liquid intake when competing in such events as , the Iron Man and Triathalon sports. The editors wanted something literal , but with a humorous twist. An enjoyable piece to do.

This looks great! The pose and composition are really good, and I'm impressed with the use of color. Rough sketch is great too, perhaps even more dynamic than the final illustration.
Excellent blog... Do you have more Rita comics? Thanks for leaving the comment on my blog today.
