Illustration Friday - Impatience


The problem with winning the rat race is you're still a rat. - Lily Tomlin

Although being in a hurry and impatience are not exactly the same thing, I think they are closely related. After all, if you are not in a hurry, what is there to be impatient about? Last Friday, as I was driving home from work, I saw a runner dash past me. Later, my husband told me he thought an illustration about impatience should include a clock. Voila! I had a concept for my illustration.

I used Edward Muybridge's photograph sequence of a running man as the models for my runners. Here is the sequence I used:
