Exquisite Corpse: A Collaborative “Never-Ending” Illustration Project

Remember playing the game Telephone as a child? The game that consisted of people passing around a phrase and then laughing at how the phrase gets distorted from one person to the other? Illustration project Exquisite Corpse is like the visual version of Telephone. The collaborative project invites illustrators to participate in a “never-ending” abstract illustration.¬†¬†Each illustrator adds to the piece in sequence while only being allowed to see a small part of what the previous illustrator contributed. The effect is a single, unifying illustration that seamlessly morphs into different ideas and interpretations.

Although we have a gallery of all the contributions above, because the image is vertical, to truly experience the project we recommend checking out the full thing on their website. (Update: Apparently the site is now down!)
