  1. Love the drawing! I thought that we called the game ‘consequences’ – what Rosie callse ‘exquisite Corpses’… but maybe I’m confused and consequences was just the written version… I like Rosie’s name better anyway!

  2. This is a fabulous drawing! I don’t know why I feel like it has a magazine illustration quality to it. I’m just trying to work out what the article would have been about… It’s really captivating. I wonder what your subjects would have made of it too!
    Did you actually piece two drawings together or do you start sketching from the feet upwards?

    • Thanks, this is lemonade. Yes, I agree, this is more of an illustration than a drawing, I’m not sure my subjects would approve of the end result. I started sketching the woman from the feet up, then she left so I just had a pair of legs with no body and there wasn’t much space left on the page. I’ve started to take loose paper with me, in case I run out of sketchbook space, so I marked up her waist and waited patiently for a torso to appear, that’s when I spotted the business man. One thing led to another, and before I new it I ended up with this drawing. I scanned the pages in, and patched them together in photo-shop, which took a lot longer than doing the drawing. Thanks for your questions, Russell.

    • Glad you liked it, and thanks for the mention on Twitter the other day. Yes, Femme fatale is a great phrase, and I got a few of them lined up to post. Watch this space. . . .

      • Glad you think so, thinking about exploring this further, do you remember an old drawing game from school: Fold a piece of paper four times, one person would draw the feet, another the legs. . .and you couldn’t see what the other person had drawn, remember that one? Then the surprise when you finally unfolded the drawing. Thank you for taking the time to comment, Russell.

      • You’re welcome. The game is called Exquisite Corpses and was used by the Surrealists to ‘loosen up’ artistically. I use it a lot in my adult teaching classes. It’smgreat fun and very interesting results :)
