When Barbara opened up the doors for some good old-fashioned artist collaborations, I just had to jump in and participate!
This piece was drawn for an “exquisite corpse” collaboration based on a puzzle piece shape, where every artist drew a section with only a tiny hint of what the adjacent pieces looked like. Still confused? Go view the complete piece for an explanation and to see the finished product!
Thanks so much to Barbara for organizing, Matt for coming up with the idea and drawing one of the adjacent pieces that guided this one, Lisa who drew the one on the other side, and all the other lovely collaborators who participated… it’s unreal how good it all looks put together!
The star of the show is an Eagle Owl, and was based on some photos I took at a falconry show.
Drawn with ink pens (and some brush fills) on 9×12 smooth bristol paper, with some very minor digital edits to reformat it as a stand-alone piece. Copyright 2010 Stephanie Smith, all rights reserved aside from use in the Puzzle Collaboration here on RedBubble.
