exquisite!

Many months later, the exquisite corpse scrapbook I started with my artist friend Sergio is complete. Even after the pages appeared to be full, he kept adding layers: a cityscape in the corner of a partially used page, a collage of coolers and lawn chairs and mysterious holy men. It's everything I love about L.A., art and randomness. Here are a few highlights, as photographed by AK.

Sergio is amazing. I basically did some free-writes, and he responded with these gorgeous collages, lino block prints, paintings, etc. I highly recommend such a project as the best writing prompt ever. We submitted it to the Armory for an exhibit about art that uses the postal service.

So cool! I've always dug the art/text combination of the Griffin & Sabine books. Something so pleasing about pulling a sheet from an envelope to read juxtaposed with great graphics.

Your handwriting? Always get a kick out of seeing something in someone's own hand.

Yep, that's my writing. I worked very hard on developing my penmanship in fifth grade, after getting a C+ on it in fourth grade.

I don't think we got letter grades for penmanship but it was incorporated into our grades somehow. I had to work on mine too. Though legible, I was less successful than you. ;)
