Okay, here’s my idea.

I’ll create at image at, say, 800×1000 pixels. Then the next person takes the last 150 pixels of the right hand side of my pic (so an area of 800×150 pixels) and sets it as the first 150 pixels of their pic. They draw whatever they feel like, so long as it merges properly with those 150 pixels. Then the next person takes the last 150 pixels of that pic and sets it as the first for theirs.. and so on and so on for as long as there are people who want to take part.

The idea being that each of the images can be laid out next to each other (with the 150px crossover on each side) to make a potentially endless illustration.

You can draw whatever you want however you want, the only requirements are the 150px at the start, and it would be cool if you worked your name into the image somehow (you can just chuck it down the bottom if you’d like, or make the whole image your name or whatever you want). If you’re using traditional media you would need to scan it in and then add the 150 strip in photoshop or something similar, and if you’re not sure how to do that I’m sure people can help.

So who is interested? If I can get a few names to start with then I’ll get into it :)

We did this in primary school!

Does that mean you don’t want to do it again? Or that you really want to do it again? ;)

Awesome – btw, I suggested over in the Tee HQ forums the idea of trying to adapt this sort of project for tee design – it’d be interesting to see what could be done…

Stephanie Smith Stephanie Smith 68 posts

This sounds like fun… but I’m afraid I might have too many things going on right now already to be reliable enough to play right now. :)

It’s not quite the same thing, but the idea reminded me of the ZoomQuilt from a few years back, it’s worth checking out if you haven’t seen it before!

Damien Mason Damien Mason 2932 posts

Okay Paul, here’s the file, you’re up next

Damien Mason Damien Mason 2932 posts

Oh, I added the text bar at the start so I wouldn’t get a free 100 pixels :)

Pip Gerard Pip Gerard 965 posts

I just realised that your name is in the swamp monster! Love that!!

brettus brettus 22 posts

Brilliant. My calendar is freeing up nicely. Definitely count me in on this : )

Great work hiding your name in the swamp critter!

Paul McClintock Paul McClintock 2738 posts

I’m working on it now… just thought I’d let people know so they don’t think I’ve forgotten.

Damien Mason Damien Mason 2932 posts

I got so excited when I saw a reply :) I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Paul McClintock Paul McClintock 2738 posts

I had a lot of trouble trying to merge the two, so I added an extra layer of mist (hope it didn’t ruin it). Have at it!

I think FlamingDerps is next… (I’ve bmailed him)

edit: Oh damn, Photobucket has shrunk it because the file is too large! Can I borrow someone’s server space?

Damien Mason Damien Mason 2932 posts

Fantastic Paul. Send me the file and I’ll chuck it up on my site (damien [at] gooddogdesign [dot] com)
