Crowdsourcing Johnny Cash

Posted to Data Art  |  Nathan Yau

Aaron Koblin (along with Chris Milk) is up to his crowdsourcing mischief again. It started with sheep, then the dollar bill, to a bicycle built for two, and now the Johnny Cash Project. Along the same lines of Aaron’s other projects, viewers are invited to draw an individual frame to the tune of Ain’t No Grave. In the end, drawings are put together to create a whole new music video for the song. Select any illustrated frame to watch a person’s drawing session.

My drawing is still waiting for approval. I can’t imagine why. That’s a bird on Johnny’s hand, by the way.
