The Johnny Cash Project: A Visual, Crowdsourced Artwork for The Man in Black

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?

Aaron Koblin, the brain behind Sheep Market and Bicycle Built for 2,000, is a project kind of guy ... and he's a big fan of Johnny Cash. 

The artist (and current leader of the Data Arts Team in Google's Creative Lab) is currently on a mission to construct a video tribute to the famous musician with a global collaborative art project

The result will weave crowdsourced drawings from an online tool similar to Amazon's Mechanical Turk and picks three frames for each participant to select and draw. 

The drawings will be compiled and put to Cash's final studio recording, "Ain't No Grave." Submit your own drawing and work with the online visual tool here
