About the co-drawing process
All the drawings on this website have multiple authors. The drawings are passed among a group of artists who meet once a quarter to view the results. The process is open and experimental, as is the number of participants. Anyone can initiate a new drawing and pass it on. As you will see in the progressive stages, marks are covered up, scraped away, collaged over, and enhanced by new hands. We do this to stimulate our brains, enjoy our craft, and learn new things about ourselves and the processes we employ to make art. It's really fun and difficult at the same time, and the results continue to surprise.
See the Progressive Drawing Stages section for the steps each drawing has gone through.
This project started in 2016 in Seattle, Washington, and is ongoing.
