These are two drawings that I made with Alexandra. The basic concept is you start with two pieces of paper and divide the paper in to four vertical sections. You trade off sections so that each person is drawing at the same time and but alternating between the sections. Basically you get a drawing as follows: head=peter, shoulders/abdomen=alexandra, thighs=peter, lower legs/feet=alexandra.
There is a lot of nudity and craziness in these drawings. It's surprisingly challenging to draw a section of a body without reference for what the other parts look like. It's also amazing how easily the sections line up. I guess that when people draw, they generally divide up the body into similar sections.
I enjoy making these drawings.
