Sub-Studio Collaboration with You! Follow The Leader...

Hey all! We had an idea for a project and we'd love for you to collaborate with us!

Follow The Leader is a small project that we dreamt up recently that focuses on three things we like: friends, illustration, and collaborating with friends. Shown above and below are some drawing 'seeds'. If you are interested in collaborating with us, please download a hi-res copy of your favorite seed drawing and complete it, however you are inspired to do so (color is welcome!). There's only one rule: The location and size of our initial seed drawing should remain the same. Hi-res pdfs can be downloaded from our website. The pdfs can be opened in Illustrator or Photoshop, or printed out and drawn on by hand.

The immediate goal of the project is to publish the work here in an online gallery. The more drawings you do, the better, so don't limit yourself to just one. Please send your hi-res drawing files to collaborate@sub-studio.com.

We will be making small editions of our favorite pieces and selling the prints in our shop. Each print sold will come with a blank copy of the drawing 'seed' so that the buyer can participate in the project by drawing their own artwork. We'll be paying each artist a percentage of each set sold.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us.

Thanks for participating and happy illustrating!

Sean and Anna
