The 1999 NYC Marathon Poster

by Andrew Yelenak

This year's poster is composed of five watercolor paintings of the five boroughs the race runs through. I tried to represent areas of the race that are meaningful to the runners, landmarks or scenes that make up the special memories of this marathon.

I drove the course last spring and photographed the different sections, then I used those pictures as reference for the paintings below.

Click on the image or the links on the right to view a large graphic of each section.

The panaromic dimensions of each painting created a challenge in composing the designs, but the long thin images add to the feeling of an epic event. I'm very proud of this group of paintings and I hope everyone running this year will find my work to be a fitting representation of the race.
