When this 75 foot deep sinkhole spontaneously opened in Missouri some years ago, it swallowed a garage and a 2001 Chevy Cavalier. There is no clear moral to this story.

geyser basin in Yellowstone National Park

Smallpox & Stetson

Hello all! This image is one I drew for a zine exchange the bookmaking class at UT did last semester. The theme was "Cowboys & Indians." Felt like that topic/this image could relate to our portfolio. Hope it's o.k. that I'm using an image from a past exchange....let me know if not.

This is a bit literal in terms of the exchange, but a starting point. It is a ship that crashed into the Oregon Coast in the 1920's. Also, the deadline for the completed prints is February 1, 2010.

Get that ball rolling...

Wikipedia-- the Lord bless it-- describes the Exquisite Corpse as "...a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse...Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. "The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun") or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed."

I don't think we need to adhere to a strict format, but our print exchange seems a variation on the Surrealist parlor game.

And now there's a post up.
