Weekly Website Wednesday: Epic Exquisite Corpse

epic exquisite corpse link pictureAn exquisite corpse is a collaborative drawing, where one person starts a drawing and then folds over the paper so only a small, unrecognizable portion of the drawing can be seen, then another person continues the drawing from that portion, folds over the paper and passes it on to another person, and so on and so on, until there isn’t any paper left to be drawn on. The paper is then unfolded to reveal a freaky, mutant drawing that is a combination of everyone’s styles.

Epic Exquisite Corpse is a huge version of this. It’s already huge with over 73,000 sections already drawn, but that’s out of a total of a million possible sections, so it’s going to be insane when it’s finished.

Anyhoo, go draw your own section. IT’S FUN!

Weekly Website Wednesday: Jheronimus Bosch, the Garden of Earthly Delights Interactive Documentary

Hieronymus Bosch was a crazy Dutch painter, who painted crazy Dutch things. Of particular interest is his triptych The Garden of Earthly Delights. Some modern-day crazy Dutch people made an interactive tour of the triptych. It is very interesting and crazy. Go look at it.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Coloring Book Corruptions

This week’s website is missing a “u” in its title, but I still love it anyway.

coloring book corruptions link pictureColoring Book Corruptions is a blog where innocent colouring book pages are edited and coloured in in such a way to suggest something much more sinister than the original artist intended.

It’s pretty funny. They even let you submit your own corrupted colouring book pages.

Weekly Website Wednesday: Jerry’s Map

This week’s website is all about imagination and meticulous attention to detail.

jerry's map link picture Starting in 1963 with a single panel, Jerry Gretzinger started drawing a map of his own invented world. His map is now made up of over 3200 8×10 panels and it continues to grow and evolve to this day.

One of the most interesting things about Jerry’s map is that it doesn’t just grow outwards. Established areas of the map can be destroyed or changed through phrases randomly pick from a deck of cards, or from Jerry’s rules about how the people of his invented world acquire resources and services. For example: if a city grows in size so too must its farmland to feed everyone.

Jerry’s map is never complete and he plans on working on it for as long as possible.
