This character was drawn for panel 1 on page 36 of my 2009 comic Super Duper Ham: Day One. My original drawing, which was used in Elephant Run 01, shows the back of the character running. I traced the silhouette and redrew the image to show the front of the character running. To give it more variation, I changed the laces.
The background was drawn for panel 1 on page 25. I had the scene sketched out in a book and I spent an afternoon running around Williamsburg in Brooklyn, photographing buildings and sidewalks.
The two images were collaged together in 2011.
