Exquisite corpse; The Art Version

Fooky's site is going gangbusters, everyone seems to enjoy working with Fooky or contributing to the site; we're 2 months ahead of schedule and  we got over 2 dozen pro artists who either contributed work or have given permission to use their work (with full credit of course).    In fact, we are still getting notes from artists who want to participate*.  So, I decided to "green light" some of the features that we didn't think we had time to finish–Fooky will provide the structure, and any illustrator who wants to "own a segment" will be able to fill in the gaps. 

For example, if Fooky writes about a character that fits your style, you can illustrate that part of the story.  When writers do this kind of thing they call it "The Exquisite Corpse".   So what shall we call our thing?  Vote!  Or leave your suggestion!

 

What do we call our art based Exquisite Corpse?

* Yes, of course you can still contact me directly if you see something you want to illustrate exclusively.

Captcha Royale

Ideally, Fooky's new site (fookleyur.com) would have games and animated shorts.  There are dozens of contributing artists and we're even starting to hear from writers… all pro's!  But so far we don't have any animators. I won't have the time or the equipment to do animation until next year. 

There's something addictive about working on the new Fookleyur site, so we decided to kick it up a notch and use an idea that was planned for the Oddhobby site before there was a name for it (captcha).  Actually, I'm not sure if captcha means goofy letters or if it applies to any human detecting system.  Hmmm, I hope we don't have to change the name. Hold on, let me look it up on the Wiki…

Olio

Sorry, still a few bugs!!! It's my fault–I still have pages that need to be designed, or redesigned. I'm never happy when it comes to the design for my own sites. The blog is usable, just not complete… so I guess I should start using it.

About Fooky Pt1

Fooklyeur is a writer, an absurdist: he's like a Dr Seuss for adults.  His work is risqué and often humorous.  Over 2 dozen pro artists have contributed work or time to rebuild his site.    Fooky's site didn't start out as a special project.  He's a friend, not a client.  There's a small group of us who know each other way back from the Oddhobby days.

For a while, Fookleyur had fallen off the face of the earth.  By chance, John (Lee) and his son liked to watch BoBoBo, Bo BoBoBo, The Mighty Boosh and other weird shows.  John is a friend, and sometimes client, and the CEO of a consulting firm that does work for small group of publishers in Chicago.  John mentioned (on a blog or something, I forget exactly) that he had a friend who wrote non-sequitur humor; one thing lead to another and we found Fookleyur!
