Like the Wind is a project born of love. At its core is the love of a simple act of putting one foot in front of another. Whether on the road, trail or track, we love running. And that is why we run. (See what we did there?)
We also feel the love from the people who write for the magazine. From the brands that support the magazine. From the people who read and collect the magazine. And from our visual artists – the people who make LtW so uniquely beautiful.
But we also know that artists can’t pay the bills with love. So we have come up with a plan that we hope might help out some of our artists in some way. We have partnered with a small number of running brands that have supported Like the Wind in the past. Between us and them we have created a pot of money we are calling the LtW Artists in Residences fund. Every penny in that fund will go to people who have contributed so generously to the visuals in the magazine since 2014.
To begin with, we are only asking artists who have contributed more than one piece of art (illustration, collage, photography) to the magazine on a voluntary basis since 2014. Those who match the criteria have been sent an email. (If you think you should have received an email, please get in touch!)
