Rock the Vote

So I got invited to be a part of the Rock the Vote social media campaign. KEWL! I thought it could be cool to do this as more of a Threadless community project(starting with the alumni). This is basically what they originally sent me:



The Rock the Vote guy liked the idea and assigned us November 3rd, which is three days til the election. So our idea is to try to get as many of y'all involved by drawing (simply in black marker or pen) a trio of anything you see fit. It could be 3 amigos, 3 lil' pigs, 3 men and a 3 lil' babies, 3 cats with 3 legs, 3 tripods, 3 refrigerators, 3 Mary Kate Olsens... anything really... as long as it's not partisan and not vulgar and no one else is drawing 3 of what you're drawing. I'll then collage all these trios together by splitting them apart for the background of our visual countdown. This way viewers can try and search for the trios. Betsy, our copywriter is working on our slogan which will go in the foreground. Then on November 3rd Rock the Vote will throw our little piece of art all over the internet(we'll help with that too).


What do y'all think? You can start by calling dibs on what your trios are gonna be In this blog. Then you just need to post your drawings by friday if possible.


Yeah!
VOTE!


Some quick examples coming!

celandinestern

would it be ok to use part of something previously subbed? I have three cicadas that would love to participate in this. Also I can draw three new ones if necessary.

arzie13

Sure, they just need to be sketchy looking.

celandinestern

does this look sketchy? I can do sketchier.

arzie13

Ha, yeah. Try a 60 second version of that with a sharpie marker. Rock the Vote loves the Sharpie look.

HEY! DRAW THINGS.

valorandvellum

All the staff drawings are mostly faces and small objects. Is this more of a face only thing? Keep the drawings simple?

arzie13

Things that make you think of the election and 'mericuh would be cool! Love to see an international take too.
