Corpses Shall Rise

Here are a bunch of exquisit corpses I created with my buddy Mike.

An exquisite corpse is an art excercise where you fold up a sheet of paper and only draw on the part that you can see. Then you continue the lines just a little bit over the fold and hand it to someone else, all they see are the lines near the fold, but not the rest of what you drew. So they draw something in relation to those lines only, and extend their drawing over the fold for the next person. usually, the paper are folded in thirds, and three people work on ’em. We did some traditional folds, but two of these pieces were folded up in weird paper airplane type folds.
