HOW DID I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS? Of all places, I was at work staring at some football game because the bar was so very very slow tonight, and an ad from Google Chrome featuring this project came up. Check it out here, the Johnny Cash Project is a truly innovative crowd sourced music video done by Chris Milk (He also was behind the HTML5 masterpiece music video –Wilderness Downtown by Arcade fire)

The Johnny Cash Project is a global collective art project, and we would love for you to participate. Through this website, we invite you to share your vision of Johnny Cash, as he lives on in your mind’s eye. Working with a single image as a template, and using a custom drawing tool, you’ll create a unique and personal portrait of Johnny. Your work will then be combined with art from participants around the world, and integrated into a collective whole: a music video for “Ain’t No Grave”, rising from a sea of one-of-a-kind portraits.

A “living” portrait of the Man in Black, simply amazing.
