It is with great sadness that I have recently learned that our friend Deborah Valentine has a neurodegenerative condition ultimately leading to dementia, clinically diagnosed as Alzheimer's disease.

Along with Bernard Dumaine and Jean-Paul Miller, Deborah’s drive and enthusiasm was central to the formation of this Exquisite Corpse group on DeviantArt.com www.deviantart.com/theexquisit…. Who could have guessed in 2005 that this group would grow to include so many collaborations by amazing artists from all over the world. The impressive gallery of work produced by this group of friends is stunning and would not have happened in such a creative way without Deborah’s constant input and careful direction. So many deep connections between artists have been forged over the years and new collaborations continue to build on what Deborah started. Her mischievous sense of humour, her talents and surreal vision are clearly evident in all her work. I feel privileged to have been a small part of her life and greatly miss chatting with her and the excitement of seeing her new works. I send her love for all her efforts over the years, admiration for her constant inspiration, and gratitude that she has been a part of my life.

:bulletblack: It is up to you to find a partner to collaborate with, I cannot tell you who to chose:bulletblack:


To Join, send your request to us in a note
Create a collaboration in the way we suggest below for a review to
Deborah-Valentine.

Remember this is an advanced skill level group.

:bulletblack:The basics: One person draws on one side of the page, covers it save a 3 cm strip then sends it through the general post to their partner. Their partner finishes the drawing based just on that 3 cm strip and then scans it and posts it online.

There have been different formats:
:bulletblack:Diagonal,
:bulletblack:4 panels,
:bulletblack:Round,
:bulletblack:Square with round in the center,

:bulletblack:Digital: sending their strip via email to finish (Please! no previews of the strip to anyone)
:bulletblack:digital and traditional collage still relying on the strip.

:bulletblack:

This group was founded 7 years ago and has gone through some interesting changes, Joy, psychic experiences and many other incredible events.

Have fun and be adventurous in your choice of a collaborator.

Group Info

A collaborative club for digital and traditional artists. The club was based on the surrealist game The Exquisite Corpse, a parlor game where the drawing was hidden from the other artists save a small strip to carry on the image.
This club is over 7 years old, the first surreal collaborative club of its kind.

What a cool idea. I didn't even know there was a visual art Exquisite Corpse, as well as the poetry variety.

actually if you want to use text only, it would have to be in a different folder.

WOW!!! It is amazing how much incredible artwork I've missed in 2 years, I think it will take another 2 to absorb and truly appreciate each one. I missed this place.
