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 Paula’s box I was inspired by an illustration from a book by Ramona Badescu and Benjamin Chaud. They are both wonderful illustrators and I think Paula would really like their work. The image I remember is an onion peel spiraling down like a slide and a little bird crying big tears as it walked downward. As I started painting for Paula, I was cutting out big blue drops and then the words “onion rain” popped into my mind. I felt like sending Paula a little message about finding the fun in any given situation. Even a rainy day can turn into a fun ride!
