Surrealism on your lap

Today in Drawing club, we did the collaborative drawing exercise. On the left, are the drawings that we took turns drawing one line at a time until a vague picture formed then each of us reinterpreted the drawing. This is a great exercise when you don’t know what to draw. As Nathan put it, it’s “surrealism on your lap.” You don’t have to come up with symbolism or force anything. It just becomes something from some collective unconscious perhaps.
