Mr Squiggle
April 28, 2006 7:05 AM   Subscribe

A duel between two artists. One artist supplies a squiggle, the other turns it into a drawing, incorporating the elements of the squiggle. Hence this becomes this and this becomes this. My favourite - before and after.

Wow, what a find. I especially liked the body art (on the challenge that said "poo" at the top, no less) and the Edward Lear poem. Thanks primer!

Anyone remember Bonnie Mitchell's "chain art" collaborative project (back in the early 90's) ?

I can't find it any more.

We introduced this concept into a game of pictionary last year, slightly modified - made it ... difficult.

Like Billegible I grew up in a small country town and used to do this with a friend in High School during advanced calculus lectures...passing papers back and forth. We used to do entire comics in this style sometimes too which made for large pieces of papers with squiggles all over the place.

Also did a lot of the game where one person draws one panel of a comic, followed by the other person drawing the next panel. Good times...

Thanks for the great link!
