Peter Sagal's Childhood


A new drawing for Peter Sagal's upcoming column "Road Scholar" in Runner's World. Peter's touching piece is about running in the neighborhood where he grew up, and the memories he encounters on his, literal, jog down memory lane. As a kid, he imagines he never would have seen himself as a passionate athletic runner in adult life. So, I had the enjoyable pleasure of drawing a dorky kid in the 70's (see below).


A few of my other concepts before we settled on him jogging by himself and his house.

I'm digging it John- I wish I could see more narrative work like this is in print out there.

Awesome. I like the kid in the window seat too.

This is really great. I like seeing your concept sketches - they are surprisingly tight.

I'd have a hard time being your art director, John, as I always love ALL of your concept sketches!
