Watch NYT Cartoonist Live-Draw (and Live-Tweet) the NYC Marathon


You’d think running the New York Marathon today would be project enough (our quads hurt just at the suggestion), but New York Times cartoonist Christoph Niemann is not only running it, but he’s also live-illustrating the race and live-tweeting his illustrations every ten minutes or so. From the looks of it, he’s having a great time interacting with the crowd and making friends with his fellow runners, all while documenting the event with a few markers and a pad of paper. At the time of this posting, he’s likely in about his 18th mile, so you still have time to follow along with his superhuman task (and bring him a banana) on Twitter: @abstractsunday.
