I was commissioned by Tracksmith, an independent running brand based in Boston, MA, to create a hand drawn map for a special marathon weekend edition of their Meter magazine.

Prints of this map are available to buy here direct from Tracksmith.

This was well received and led to a further commission for a map of the Charles River. Prints of the map are packaged with their Charles Sunglasses.

Centurion Running

I recently completed a series of 8 course maps for Centurion Running which appear on the finisher t-shirts for their series of 50 and 100 mile ultra marathon events in the UK.

"We comissioned Owen to create a series of maps for our 8 events after seeing some sketches of his online for races he had run himself. We loved the design, the feel of the maps, the attention to detail and particular the features that brought the race to light beyond that which a simple land map could deliver. We were looking forward to seeing what he created, but in the end he totally blew us away with his work. Each time we opened one of the new designs it was with a big smile on our faces. Any changes that needed making were always minor but Owen always came back to us in an incredibly short time frame with amendments and his communication was simply first class. From start to finish it has been a pleasure working with him and we will definitely be looking to continue working with him again in the future." - James Elson, Centurion Running

The Real XC

I was approached by the author of The Complete History of Cross-Country Running, to create a series of maps for some of the world's most famous courses in the sport.

"Owen's art is superb. A perfect blend of vintage and modern, he captures the essence of perspective like few can. Highly recommend!" - Andrew Hutchinson, The Real XC
