New York Marathon Travel Poster


My modern travel poster of the New York marathon crossing the Verrazano-Narrows bridge in New York City, USA.

Starting at the Verrazano-Narrows bridge on Staten Island, the New York Marathon winds its way through Brooklyn, Queens, skimming the Bronx and into Manhattan. What a route.

I’ve tried to capture the energy at the start of the race – people from all nations packed onto the bridge, full of adrenaline and hope – oblivious to the lactic acid build up awaiting them on Fifth Avenue. I originally started this illustration with a different angle in mind (looking north over the bridge from ground level) but after a few hours work I realised that at this angle this bridge could be anywhere! What I needed was Manhattan in the distance. Obvious really, and the artwork certainly did take on a new energy once I’d cottoned on to this. I really loved doing the city skyline, but was deeply moved not to be doing the Twin Towers.

I’ve never been to New York but I hope to visit one day with my family. It will not be via the NYC marathon though, I do not cultivate that kind of stamina. Huge kudos to anyone who has run it though. Huge.

Delivery times and backorders

I print to order everything except A1 posters, and can usually dispatch within 48 hours of an order being placed. I have to order A1 posters on demand from an external printer, so these take a little longer.

DELAY IN DISPATCHING ORDERS: Please note that I will only being visiting the Post Office once a week while the UK is in lockdown so please only order if you are flexible on timescales. Thank you so much for your understanding and support. Stay safe, with love, Georgina.
