Le cadavre exquis boira le vin nouveau
The dudes over at The Daily Crosshatch tuned me in to this sketchbook making the rounds of comic-cons, between some of the more well known cartoonists: a kind of Exquisite Corpse for the funny papers set. I love it so much, and wish there was more of it. Besides getting to see the likes of Johnny Ryan and Bwana Spoons in a looser form, which informative, it's cool to see that the random neural firings of other artists involve as many tentacles as mine.
In a similar vein, (like the hey-look-we're-all-dorks vein) FIST-A-CUFFS has been doing something cool. This is an idea that the Fine Comix gang in Seattle did a few years ago, but it's still fun. It kinda reminds me of the little pink M.U.S.C.L.E. men, an exercise in childhood surrealism that I didn't really comprehend until later.
