Exquisit Corpse Thingee

Post by michaelpatrick »

Wow, I haven't posted here in a while, but I figured most of you would be interested in this.

I'm going to attempt to do something that I've tried to do at least 100 times: Create an online exquisite corpse comic.

Inspired in part by the Narrative Corpse comics that R. Sikoryak and Art Spiegelman instigated some years ago, it works like this:
I draw a three panel comic and send it to the first participant. They do a follow up comic and send it to me. I send the follow up comic to participant number two (who does not get to see the initial strip) and so on. It continues until I get bored with it and then I post it on my website.


If you're interested the follow this link.

I did. It hurt.

I still post at Spike's forum once in a while. I've often considered doing a regular comic again, but have yet to find the time, what with the new human depending on me for survival. And then there's the baby.


How about yourself?

Excellent! Get her a couch, and a Playstation and you'll have the gamer of tomorrow, today.

Actually, kids can be pretty cool at times. I teach one who dances for my amusement when he's in trouble. I don't know at what point he started doing it, but I came back from vacation and there he was, bouncing around like a goof.

I could stare at that rotating bear all day.

Come to think of it, "Rotating Bear" would make a good name for a folk group. Mike, you do know how to play the mandolin, right?

Would you believe that not-making-comics inertia/ happiness has gotten a very tight grip on me over the last half year or so?

Well, you should, cuz it's true.

I got it bookmarked, if that helps.
