An ongoing project..

Show us your Corpse! Get together with friends, family, pets… create an Exquisite Corpse and have it displayed here at Creaturemag.

What is an Exquisite Corpse?

Wikipedia says: Exquisite corpse (also known as “exquisite cadaver” or “rotating corpse”) is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled, the result being known as the exquisite corpse or cadavre exquis in French. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. “The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun“) or by being allowed to see the end of what the previous person contributed.

Creature says: Get some A4 paper, draw (or write) your bit, fold it over and pass it on. Repeat until you have your corpse, send it to us and we’ll put it up on the Creature blog.
