The Square Carousel Collective was founded in 2011 by 10 talented, up and coming illustrators. After meeting at school, the group was initially formed around shared aesthetics, and now encompasses a eclectic range of styles. Although we all work in different mediums and styles, we share a common drive for professionalism and dedication to the field of illustration. We post tri-weekly challenges, with each artist taking a turn selecting a theme. We also discuss our illustrator lives of traveling to various conventions, shows, and living off ramen.
