Follow-up drawings

April 16, 2012

What’s that? You still haven’t heard enough about my trip to Switzerland? Well, lemme see, I have these drawings…here’s the drawing roulette with me, Jared,  Silvio, Dimitra and Johanna:

Here are some people Jared and I simultaneously drew:

Here’s a double portrait of Silvio and Edina by Jared and me:

Here’s Francois Olislaeger and Serge Clerc by Jared and me: Here’s Jared and me by Serge and Francois:

And here we all are drawing on Lake Lucerne by Francois:

When I got back to the States I was so excited about Drawing Roulettes I enlisted Domitille Collardey and Gabby Schulz in one at a bar:

Thank you everybody in participating in group drawing with me! It was very gratifying.

    Thanks for sharing your trip! How wonderful! I’m very pleased that you shared drawings from the drawing roulette. I was very curious about the drawings. Thank you! I’d love to hear more about the “rules” for the drawing roulette. I’d love to try it with my group here in Los Angeles. I look forward to more!

    These are fantastic! When I read the comic about them I was really curious about what your roulettes would look like – I used to do this with friends, using the paper placemats in restaurants before our meals arrived (usually they would insist that we needed to leave the drawings behind, which was for me a moment of equal sadness and freedom!).

    Yup, very cool. You must give more explicit instructions on how to do them! Thanks for posting the drawings.

    Thank yous. I’m not sure exactly about the rules, but we each had a sketchbook and we’d start to draw something, and every couple minutes we’d pass it along in a circle. The point is to pick up where the other(s) were drawing, not to draw separate things (like me and Dom and Gabby kinda did), and to let go of control of your lines. Something like that.
