Exquisite Corpse Contest Winner: Nina Asay's "Where Rain Comes From"

The winner, who will get their artwork on a poster sold exclusively on, is Nina Asay, who created the whimsical painting Where Rain Comes From (pictured at left), a very apropos piece considering the storms about the lash our dear city, and a fantastic expansion on the original inspiration drawing by SF-based artist Eunice Moyle.

Our Exquisite Corpse Game Begins Today: Submit Your Drawings!

Let our Exquisite Corpse game begin! In the spirit of Chronicle Books' inspiring new tome The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game (a twist on the classic Exquisite Corpse game), we're challenging you to rev up those artistic engines.

Are You SF's Next Hot Poster Artist?

We here at 7x7 found ourselves so inspired by The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game (Chronicle Books), that we decided to continue the game online. Starting Dec. 1, we'll post a drawing from the book done by a local artist—one each Wednesday. Get your pens and paints ready because we're asking you to "respond" to each drawing with your own creation. Every week, we'll pick our favorite drawing and give the contributor $150 in local gift certificates. Then, at the end of December, we'll choose the best from the weekly winners.
