HOW DID BRICKRUNNERS START
Like most kids I was obsessed with Lego, building things on- and off-plan from a young age, even attempting stop-frame animation with the castle set at the age of 9 on a Hi8 video camera.
Skip to 2018 and my friend and fellow Spinal Research ambassador, Eric Keeler, was running across the US; from Lubec, Maine to Santa Monica, California. Over 8 months I illustrated Eric’s journey as a BrickRunner along with one of my own characters, Bear. Slowly, Eric evolved from hand drawn cartoons to a digital mascot.
In May 2019 while fundraising for Berlin Marathon, I started illustrating everyone as their very own BrickRunner as a way of saying thanks to supporters.
HOW DOES BRICKRUNNERS WORK WITH CHARITIES
BrickRunners occasionally changes its fundraising goals. Whether that’s to fund a different charity or to meet a fundraising target for a race. Whatever we do, we want to make sure that everything we do has a positive impact on the world around us, through our actions and through our community.
HOW DOES IT WORK
We have in the past created illustrations and portraits for people as a way of saying thanks for helping us support charitable causes. As of May 2023 BrickRunners is going through some changes and we’ll be illustrating for our own enjoyment and no illustrations we publish are for-profit and are personal work only.
