The Big Draw Exquisite Story


The Big Draw is the world’s biggest drawing festival (Oct 1-31, 2015). Since this year’s theme is “Every drawing tells a story,” I thought it would be fun to do an exquisite corpse story, so I coaxed many of my talented friends into playing!

This is a variation on the Exquisite Corpse game, created by Surrealists, where “each participant would draw an image on a sheet of paper, fold the paper to conceal their contribution, and pass it on to the next player for his contribution.” In this version, you can see the participants’ entries as they evolve.

I’ll post our story pages here throughout the month so you can see the story unfold. Thanks to all of the participating artists: Carin Channing, Shari Mallinson, Yoon Chang, Isabel Kay, Bernadette Noll, Diane Bromberg, Susanne Groeneveld, Sarah Greenwood, Paul Fenton, Colleen Kong-Savage, Sonja Neumeyer, Amy Gray-Randle, Scott Stevens, Elizabeth Ellis, Doug Erb, Kate Jefferay, Kitty Levee, Sirin Thada, Joy Brehaut, Kirstin Sillitoe, Meredith Wing, and Samantha Whetton
