Poster illustration for a marathon

Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon Poster Illustration

I have just completed the illustration to be used as a promotional poster for the Fort Lauderdale A1A Marathon & Half Marathon. I’m very excited and looking forward to the run and associated expo. I am showing many of the sketches and work progression in this post so that you can have an inside look at the creation process.

I would like to thank Katty Peraza of KP Designz for suggesting this great idea and her patience and direction as well as the folks at Exclusive Sports Marketing, Inc. for giving me the opportunity to create the poster.

The images in the GIF above are actual updates of progress on the illustration that I have sent to my client. These regular updates are my standard practice so that the client knows what’s going on.

Commemorative posters will be given to registered race participants. High quality giclee prints, T shirts and some other products are available from my Society6 page.

The race is February 15th. To register or for more information visit their website at

These are the sketches I originally presented to the client as options…
