ART IN COMMUNICATION
Inspired by the “Exquisite Corpse” game of the Surrealists in the 20’s, and with the participation of a talented group of international artists, the “Exquisite Doodle” Artist Project required the players to doodle in succession on a little paper scroll set inside a small box. On this blog you’ll find the whole “Exquisite Doodle” Artist Project documented. Enjoy!
For the cover image of Kristine’s box I was inspired by her own artwork. Kristine has a very distinct style that is very graphic and also very funny. For all the simplicity of her paintings, the mechanics behind making them work are very precise down to the last millimeter. Currently we are working together on a pop-up book, and I think what keeps us going is the dream of making a detective book together where we get to dress as special agents and hunt for clues. Not too long ago I saw an add for a tv station here in Spain that shows action and horror movies. It had someone shooting at two large paper targets with black figures - a man playing Spanish guitar and a woman dancing flamenco. Thus came about Kristine’s cover - something I knew she would find funny.
