Here is what Kathleen Cammaratahas to say about the process:
Collaborative Drawing

When two or more artists work on the same drawing a new kind of imagery emerges. The artists give up ownership of the end product there by breaking new ground and discovering new aesthetic choices. The process is experimental. Participants will be moving around the room to engage in various parts of the drawing without completing a personal piece. No reference materials are necessary. A fertile imagination is very helpful

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
