Series of unique high school yearbook portraits by Russian photo studio Slon.
The idea was to combine photography with drawings on a chalkboard.

More schools should do this

this is awesome!
These are great and as individual as the kids!
Ninja Egg :D
I wish my school did this……but i can see why they don’t. It would take way too long to make each picture for each kid. But still really awesome. :)
This is perhaps the most unique idea for a school yearbook I’ve ever seen, fantastic. My school wouldn’t have gone for this as the teachers were too stuffy and strict.
someone should’ve allowed that in my school…
very nice concept would be better if it had more color on it

I’d nick the idea but can’t draw anywhere near as good as that…
http://papamrajce.rajce.idnes.cz/kreslime Our yearbook, something similiar and my work :)
As a yerd (yearbook nerd) and yearbook adviser for over 6 years…seen it, done it, could do much better. The things yearbook kids put out now, especially for the Pacemaker Awards, really is neck and neck with professional magazines.
For those who kept saying, “I wish our SCHOOL had let us do this!” …think for a bit. If you attended a graduating class of 50, maybe it’d work. 50 drawings (that didn’t have some hateful/perverted message…you know ONE of your peers would try and ruin it for EVERYONE) over maybe 5 classrooms with 5 designers/artists and 2 photographers + equipment…3-5 days of live shots, if students actually made it to their appointments. For a graduating class of 800+, and I’m ONLY talking about SENIORS… NO WAY.
Now go back to actually take a LOOK at your yearbook, to the People or Senior or Student Life section or even the Opening. For many NSPA yearbooks, the individual student features are located there.
Damn, they have good looking girls in Russia
