Running Ronald is famous among Dutch blogging runners. He is a likable guy with a passion for running.

You can read his blog at


This sketch started as a red colored pencil sketch, which I refined with black lead. The scanned result looks like this.

RunningRonald.NL (rough sketch)

As you might have guessed if you’ve read my previous posts, I removed the red color with decompose into CMYK and only using the K channel. The clean up/retouch was mostly done with the stencil tool in GIMP. After I changed the levels on the image, so the light gray pencil lines became darker, I added the text, and put an outline around it.

It was a fun project, based on one of the many photos featuring Running Ronald in his Flickr feed.

That is all.
