Experimental photographer and YouTuber Mathieu Stern happened across #DrawThisInYourStyle on Instagram and was intrigued by the collaborations.
He decided to approach an illustrator to see if they would be interested in drawing one of his photographs, and enjoyed the result so much that he collaborated with another 15 artists to create a video showing their processes.
Stern wrote about his experience with #DrawThisInYourStyle for Bored Panda.
He said that he was curious about how to collaborate within the confines of #DrawThisInYourStyle, as he is a photographer and not an illustrator.
When he decided to approach one of his favorite illustrators on Instagram to see if they were interested in redrawing one of his photos, he found the answer.
After seeing the result of that first collaboration, Stern thought:
"the result she sent me was so amazing that I started to contact every illustrator I liked on Instagram."
This led to finding 15 more artists to collaborate with and an amazing video of their creative processes.
