“The Famous Hairdos of Popular Music” is a collaborative art project in which artist Ethan Krause encourages us to print out one of his renderings of a quintessential coif and fill in the rest. Under the guise of celebrating celebrity, Krause cleverly convinces artists and non-artists alike to use their imaginations. Who could resist?!

Project Description

This booklet is the seventh collection of drawings documenting an ongoing collaborative art project, The Famous Hairdos of Popular Music. It's a celebration of non-celebrities' creativity disguised as a celebration of celebrity fashion.

Production Lesson(s)

The Famous Hairdos of Popular Music collects the amazing drawings of many individuals. The challenge, therefore, in creating these booklets is to design in a way which doesn't compete with the drawings but lets them shine, individually and as a group. In past volumes, this hands off approach went a little too far, with design that was too stiff and dull for the material. In this volume though, I think the right balance was found between elegance and the fun of the project.”
