Fun and Games

Reminder to myself: Japanese-style Moleskines are naturally suited for the playing of exquisite corpse. Must try this ASAP.

I love such little drawing games. Cully just introduced me to the concept of Sketch Crawling, which I definitely must try soon, preferably with friends. I guess I did it before, but it becomes something else once you name it and do it deliberately. Just like naming an anatomic feature suddenly allows you to perceive it (and thus draw it) better.

He sugested that I should give some name to my habit of following moving people around as I draw them, and make it into another such game/exercise. Frankly. Cully, its quite easy to name: Sketch Stalking! :D

But I wonder (don't you?) if that's really something one would like to be responsible for starting... >:->

Sketch crawling looks fun, I'll have to try that sometime. I tried Sketch Stalking someone in barnes and nobles the other night, I don't think I'll do that too much, heh.

One hopes not! :)

Cully has opened up a can of worms. Sketch Stalking is an emergency procedure, a last-ditch effort with a runaway model. It should stand behind a pane of glass with the words "break in case of emergency" :)

It is not a toy! You crazy kids! :))

(it's all fun and games until somebody gets an eye put out!) :p
