Fort William Marathon 2017

This year the lovely people of the Fort William Marathon asked me to create the medals and a series of prints which would be given to the race winners instead of the usual trophies.

The route runs through some beautiful highland scenery, and past some unique local wildlife. Over the next five years the medals will feature a different local animal, and join together in a star, (like the way this years medals have been displayed in the bottom photograph). The prints will also display the animal of that year, but may change in style from year to year.

This year focuses on the hare, but you can look forward to seeing otters, eagles, stags and wildcats!

Hand painted and digitally coloured, printed and then cut and layered by hand.
