About a fortnight ago I completed a commission for Bill McDermott in New York to design a T shirt for this year’s World Run Day.

For more information regarding this event visit:

This was a challenge as Bill had seen my website ( and wanted me to draw him a coloured pencil design that could be printed as a T shirt. Unfortunately the drawing that I initially completed had too many colours for the photographic screen process that his printer uses. A digital print was possible but far too expensive.

I set about re-designing the print in Photoshop with 4 colours on a postage stamp background. You can read more about this design on the World Run Day site.

I enjoyed the experience and hope to obtain further similar commissions in the not-too-distant future.

I am currently working on two cover designs for a Christian magazine. I shall post those soon.

    Great work Richard – I particularly like the simplified image. Can you please tell me where to buy some runners like that!!

  2. Thanks for your remarks Margaret. If one could buy such runners, one would be flying, not running!
