112 days and counting


I came across an old art project I did awhile back. Shown are the details from an accordion book format of a “journal” I created which counts down my four-month training schedule for my first marathon, the 2002 Napa Valley Marathon. The piece is visual more than anything else. Each panel represents how many weeks was left before the race and includes drawings, acrylic, collage, and rubber stamping.

In hindsight, I wish that I’d written more entries in here.

Hey e-rod, nice! i love it! Just goes to show that preparing for a marathon isn't about just physical training but mental preparation too. What part of it is the collage? I just see the illustration, rubber stamping, and acrylic.
