Talk About Endurance!

Here's something a little out of the ordinary for me. An editorial illustration! Yesterday, as I bowed before the Stumbleupon gods, the story of Fauja Singh suddenly appeared. If you're like me and don't follow the news very much, then you may not have heard that this 100 year old Indian man from Great Britain just finished the Toronto Waterfront Marathon a few days ago - making him the oldest person to ever run a marathon. I can barely run two miles without croaking and this guy is running marathons. Now that's inspiring. So inspiring that I figured I would whip up a painting to commemorate this man's extraordinary achievement! The official story can be found here.
