collaborative drawings with Tom Eichacker


Last week I spent an afternoon doing collaborative drawings with the awesomely talented High School student, Tom Eichacker. He had sent me a pile of great drawings, mostly made on top of math assignments, utilizing the bleed-through of the pens and markers to make double sided images. I was really inspired by what he was doing. The math is beyond my understanding. We wrote back and forth a few times and finally met up. I love the way collaborative art becomes a visual conversation between the artists. The pieces themselves are a record of how completely different approaches can work together in unexpected ways. Thanks for drawing with me, Tom!

  3. Love the idea of the collaboration and love the art work that came out it. As a slightly disillusioned high school teacher i think this is wonderful.
