Niemann to attempt to live-draw a marathon run
From the Gothamist:
“It’s either the smartest or the most idiotic idea ever,” laughs Niemann. He wanted to tell a personal story-”but I realized I’m running out of stories, because my life isn’t that interesting.” So he signed up for the marathon. “I like the idea of working without being able to go back into the studio for a week,” he says. “There’s something about the urgency of deadlines that interests me. I’m pushing the idea of live reporting to the limits!”
So far the plan is to run a mile and a half and walk a mile and a half while drawing during the walking portion.
Good luck Christoph. If you’re not familiar with his work, head over to the New York Times. I especially liked his “Rock Paper Scissors, 2011 Style“
