New York City Marathon live-illustrated by runner


Niemann, artist and columnist for The New York Times’ Abstract Sunday blog, tweeted his drawings — which depicted his exhaustion, told stories of other runners and asked bystanders for bananas throughout the approximately six hours of his race time. He even had to start up a second Twitter account when he passed the limit of uploading images. Take a look at some of Niemann’s work below, along with a more complete timeline of his experience.
