Collaboration with Carroll

Here's what I added to the collaboration sheet I started with Carroll.


Sent in this envelope.



Here's the full sheet of artistamps. This is an (unexpected) collaboration with stripygoose. She turned my ink blots into birds, and I turned her bird blots into stamps. 





I usually find add and pass stressful, however after my one on one add and pass back with Keith worked so well, I think that is more my speed.

Do you like art collaborations? 
If you were to receive an add and pass, how would you feel?

  1. Hi Phillip - they are fun to see ... but being of the non-artistic bent ... mine would be awful - I'll stick with what I can do ... interesting collaboration though .. cheers Hilary

    1. The thing is, here all I've added is some rubber stamped letters, and some inkblots - anyone can do those!

  3. I habe received only once a add and pass and I was very nervous about it. It was years ago. With more experience now I think I would feel more relaxed. I really think collaboration is great.

    1. I like collaborations that happen naturally, without being forced.

  4. I must say that "add and pass" (or "add and return") also stresses me a bit. It seems that good ideas never quick quickly to my mind! With your Morrow poem happened that, but the result wasn't that bad eventually.

    I attended yesterday an exhibition of an illustrator of children's books. There were an activity: trying to discover characters in paint blots. It was intended for kids, but of course I participated as well :D I love your artistamps!

    1. It's a bird blot, so it can be anything you want it to be. I like your description of a dancing ostrich.

  6. Add and pass would make me nervous. I enjoy seeing what others come up with. Maybe sometime I will get brave enough to collaborate with others.

    1. I definitely just go at my own pace now, and don't stress about them.

    1. It can be a ton of fun. You should find an arty buddy and give it a try.

    2. Sounds like the best of both worlds - one to write, and one to draw.
