The Resurrection of the Exquisite Corpse

It's a Surrealist art game. Here's one I lifted off Wikipedia.

Shelby and I are excited about the exquisite corpse game! Here’s how you do it:

Both artists should agree to use the same colors and media. It can be a pencil drawing, but Shelby and I both like collage, so we’re doing that. The first artist covers half the paper with half of their design and then covers what they did except for 1/2″ in the center, so the second artist has no idea what the first artist did. Then the second artist has to connect their design to the 1/2″ they can see on the unfinished corpse. After the second artist is finished, they can take the wrapping paper off and see the CRAZY !

Both artists start a corpse and trade so both get to finish and keep one. I sent one to Shelby. I hope she can’t guess what’s under the wrapping.

Here's an exquisite corpse I'm sending to Mary Beth Brath.

I tinted the board with gold acrylic, and I’m sending her the colored paper I used. She can finish this on and start one for me. We’re planning Exquisite Corpse shows in Richmond VA and in PA. If any of our friends out there in computerland would like to participate, let us know.
