Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Alyssa Nassner and Rachel Dougherty describe their latest effort as "an ongoing excuse to make artwork, as well as a way to connect and network with fellow artists."

Each week, a theme is given to a group of illustrators who create, collaborate, and complete each other's work. 

The result is Ten Paces and Draw. "It's a fun and simple way to experiment with other illustrators' styles, and see how one's work is handled in the hands of another artist," they write. So far, the collection includes collaborations of animals, literary characters, and (our favorite) This American Life's Ira Glass

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
