We haven't done this swap for about a year so let's get another one going ...
This will be our third crack at playing the exquisite corpse game with each other ... by ourselves!
Create a collage postcard of a figure using 4 different parts.
The parts should be divided like this:
Your collage can combine human, robot, plant or animal parts or whatever else fits.
Some of this can be drawn or painted or rubber stamped or whatever. Incorporate all your wonderful art skills to create your figure but be mindful that this is a collage group.

Postcards can be any size. Preferably sent naked but if you've had issues in the past, pop it into an envelope or one of those clear envelopes or whatever. Be sure to apply proper postage.
Get creative, have some fun and celebrate the surreal!

Do a search at google images for exquisite corpse collage and you get some GREAT examples!
Taking turns adding onto each other’s drawings and collages resulted in fantastic composite figures, such as Nude by Yves Tanguy, Joan Miró, Max Morise, and Man Ray. The resulting nude female figure combines a humorous and absurd array of features—from leaf ears to snowshoe feet. For the Surrealists, Exquisite Corpse was a perfect parlor game, involving elements of unpredictability, chance, unseen elements, and group collaboration—all in service of disrupting the waking mind’s penchant for order.
