Super mega collab – story edition!

Chris Lane / Collaboration, photography / / 5 Comments

Here is a project that has been in the works for some time now. Another collaboration with fellow photographers via twitter. You can see collab 1 and collab 2 as well. With the first, everyone was given the same photo to edit in whatever means they saw fit. We got some pretty interesting results out of one photo. The second collab was started with a photo and like the game telephone, aka Chinese whispers, the image was changed by a person next in line until a very different result ended the entire thing.

This time around, I started with a photo that I thought could be taken in multiple ways as a story starting point. Then the photo was sent to two different people to continue the story how they saw fit. That was each given to someone else, with an occasional branching point along the line. This will make more sense in a bit. Each person had to create a new photo illustrating a point in a story. The only photos each person saw were the ones that came before them in their particular branch.

The collaboration effect gets pretty interesting when so many people from all over the world get a chance to do their own thing. First up, I’ll show the entire tree with thumbnails on how the process went. After that I will illustrate each story from beginning to end in larger images.

So there you have it. Another collaboration project amongst a great group of photographers with a wide variety of ideas and stories of their own. I am very pleased with how this project turned out and it was a lot of fun to put together. Subscribe and stick around for the next collaboration, which will be quite different from this.

Also, feel free to interpret the stories in your own way, I’d love to hear what you think of them in the comments below!

Prisoner – the process

Chris Lane / Design, illustration, process / / 0 Comments

Prisoner Process
Now that the Prisoner graphic novel is finished on here, I would like to fill you in on the process I used to create the comic’s illustrations. And again, if you haven’t visited the author, Dean’s website yet, you really should. Now, I should say, this process is by no means the ‘correct’ way and certainly isn’t the traditional way, it is just the way that I happened to go through it. I very likely would change some things in the future, if I happen to do any more comics. And by the way, if you enjoyed this comic and would like to see more (or really hated and never want me to do it again, goshdarndit!), let me know through the comments at the bottom of this post, or send me a message. If you want to skip past all the wordiness, here is the link to the video demonstrating my process.
