Jeanne Schedler—my good pal and Photoshop buddy—has come up with her own version of a round robin: the digital volley. On July 19th, she lobbed the first volley via email (upper left); I responded by altering it and sending it back. We had five volleys each ending with me (picture lower right).
Not only was the interaction a lot of fun, but also I learned something about myself: i.e. I don’t like tampering with anyone else’s art even when it’s done in Photoshop. It took me until Volley 10 to feel brave enough to transform Jeanne’s work. She, on the other hand, is much more adventurous than I am. But what else would you expect from someone who has walked on ice flows in the Antarctic?
