I love this
Onwards is a video by illustrator James Jarvis and Director Richard Kenworthy of Shynola. Jarvis, who is a fantastic and rather popular pop artist, is also a runner… and a pretty serious one too (sub 00:35:00 10k!).
Nike invited Jarvis to create a video about running. The video above is the end result. I think it’s beautiful.
When I first watched it, I was blown away by how he had captured many of the subtleties of running. Then I did some searching and learned how the project all came together. See below.
From the inside
Nike also made a little documentary called Onward From the Inside where Jarvis talks about how his art and his running both feed each other. As an artist myself I really appreciated his words and found a lot within them that I could relate to.
Sorry, but not Link Love again this week. I’ve just been too damn busy. I guess I’ll have to reevaluate the weekly nature of the Love. Stay tuned.
