Collaborative Work – Ian and Frank – 11/19/2009

Ian and Frank's Collaboration

Ian and Frank's Collaboration

This collaboration was completed over a two-day period by myself (Frank Korb) and my new friend Ian. Ian and I were at a 5th and 6th, 7th and 8th grade orchestra concert, waiting patiently for the show to start – him more patiently than was. I managed to draw the back of a gentleman’s head one row in front of me while waiting for the woman (daughter probably) next to him to sit or lean forward so I could get the face done. That never happened. The results of that not happening were some unique and wonderful creatures and bugs and figures during the concert and wrapped it up later on with a fine man handing an ice cream cone to a crying child. The ideas that this collaboration bring to mind are great and I look forward to trying to implement some of the collaborative ideas into future works. Excellent job Ian! Thank you for sharing the time and talents (and for giving the back of the head a face). Click on the image to see a much larger version of the picture.

  1. I just got back from an open canvas event at MIAD – Oh Boy am I inspired! The works were so fresh and wonderful. The artists were so great to talk to and the collaboration Ian and I did made me really look at the possibilities that my work could move to. The portrait will stay, but I have to try some new ideas and new techniques. Seeing Ian’s fresh pencil line and story telling is such a fun look into the drawing medium. I love it too.
