INK: The Exquisite Corpse

Now that we've returned from Spring Break, the class will begin working with India ink. As an introduction we played a round of the "Exquisite Corpse." This is a great way to explore the possibilities of image development as well as exploring the various techniques of hatching, stippling and invented mark-making or patterns. The top drawing in particular illustrates a wide variety of techniques. The bird head is mostly parallel lines and hatches with cross-hatching for greater value contrast. The fish torso employs hatching and stippling techniques and the squid legs add pattern for a simulated texture.
