Cartoon Network Enterprises announces the launch of The Cartoon Network Collective, an exclusive, limited-edition product line that looks at Cartoon Network Original Series through the eyes of some of today’s most popular artists. The Collective, available exclusively through the Cartoon Network Shop, is a collaboration between CNE, current CN Shop licensee Bolder Road, and the newly-formed Horizon Line Studios.
Created for savvy collectors and fans of Cartoon Network animation, The Collective is launching with 11 unique designs from 10 different artists — beginning with Missy Pena’s take on Steven Universe and Anthony Petrie’s Over the Garden Wall piece. These will feature on an array of products including limited edition posters, apparel, phone cases, high-end notebooks and more.
In addition to the products, The Collective will make available interviews with each of the artists as well as behind-the-scenes content from some of CN’s hit shows. The collection will be refreshed each month with new artists and their interpretations of hit shows.
“This is an exciting time to be in entertainment because pop culture has permeated so many aspects of our lives,” said Rick Blanco, CEO and Creative Director, Horizon Line Studios. “The Cartoon Network Collective will be more than a store – - it will be a community that will offer fans and collectors a new way to engage with their favorite brands.”
First-round The Collective artists are: Jason Edmiston, Mahendra Singh (Adventure Time); MAKO (Adventure Time, Regular Show); Missy Pena, Ty Mattson (Steven Universe); Miranda Dressler, Louie Zong (We Bare Bears); Frank Forte (Clarence); Anthony Petrie (Over the Garden Wall); and CHOGRIN (Dexter’s Laboratory).
