After Thereza’s tweet about a special project I was very curious and sure it’s connected with art – art project. About 4 hours later a Happy Journey was launched. It’s the product of the imaginative heads of illustrators Thereza Rowe, Lesley Barnes and Abi Daker.
It was born out of a Twitter interaction over a link Thereza posted featuring eco friendly customized coffins which used mostly stock images and very little imagination.
They invited the best artists illustrators from around the world to form a collective to answer a brief involving *final destination* boxes design. The project has been developing better than they ever expected as the response from the artists involved and originality of their artwok have been amazing so far. Although currently web based, ideas and possibilities for print publishing + an exhibition are being discussed and explored.
Should you wish to get involved the first thing to do is to join the group pool on Flickr, read through the brief and download the project template. I’m sure there are many creative brains, show us how your *final destination* box is gonna look like.
Good luck with your project!
