Description

The Great North Run is the largest half marathon in the world. Starting in Newcastle Upon Tyne and finishing in South Shields, this famous half marathon is well loved for its early autumn sunshine, its crackling atmosphere and of course, the Red Arrows flypast. I had already drawn the London Marathon print when the GNR was suggested to me so I already had a tried and tested way of graphically representing a mass of diverse people running. Drawing the Tyne Bridge was a little tricky at first, lots of steel and shadows to deal with but I got there in the end.

My favourite bit do draw though was the Red Arrows. Their breath taking displays at airshows always leaves me a little overwhelmed and it was a pleasure to spend time working out how to draw these and how to best do the iconic red white and blue smoke trails.

Delivery times and backorders

I print A3 and A4 posters to order, and can usually dispatch within 48 hours of an order being placed. I have to order A1 and A2 posters on demand from an external printer, so these take a little longer. You’ll be able to see if I have any of these larger sizes in stock.
