This is the biggest collaborative project yet.

Chris Lane / Art, illustration, photography / / 3 Comments

You may have seen my previous collaboration project with 8 others via twitter but this time I decided to go bigger. I also completely changed the format of how we went about the effort. Previously, I gave each person the same set of raw files and told them to do whatever they felt like doing with them. This time, I started with one finalized image, handed it off to the next person to do whatever they wanted, and then their file would go on to the next, and the next and so on until everyone was finished. The only image each person saw was the one handed to them, so everyone is completely in the dark at this point. Well, today will be the big unveiling.
The rules were simple, anything was allowed, except they had to leave one part of the image intact, or at least recognizable, and add or change at least one thing. The beginning image was one I recently showed for a local art collective program I was a part of, called The Traveler. Below I will post the size that my blog will allow with the name of the manipulator beneath, then at the bottom of this post I will put them all together in a more concise manner.

Two new name illustrations

Chris Lane / illustration / / 0 Comments

A few months back I held a contest to win a custom name illustration to one lucky subscriber and showed an example of such. Tanner L was the winner and a while ago I finished his illustration, and thought I should share it here also. It works as a great example that the illustration can have any kind of names, not just family. Tanner chose four directors, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino, Stanley Kubrick, and Martin Scorcese, whose work has influenced him and his own work. I am rather happy with the result and Tanner was very much so as well. He left the color choice to me and I thought it was fitting to put this one as various shades of red on a black background as it fit with Tanner’s personality as well as the darker nature of the work of the directors.
