Shelley the snail
Following on from Caroline's Monsterquences posting a couple of weeks ago, this is a starter for anyone to provide a head or a body to attach to my undisclosed monster head and body. If you draw one, could you keep it under wraps for the moment, and just put the url location of it either in the comments, or on an email. If you have drawn a body, you might like to post up a similar starter for legs!
That may be as utterly clear as a deep squelchy bog - refer back to Caroline's item for a better idea. Anyway, we've all played this as kids haven't we? Incidentally, the head, body or legs can be animal, monster, human, vegetable or mineral - don't feel restricted to monstrousness alone...
See above posting for details. On this one, I invite submissions of legs to join on to the body I've drawn, or alternatively a body to go with some legs. Put the URL location of your picture in the comments or send it by email, and at some point I'll put them altogether in various amusing juxtapositions.

Welcome to the Camel Exchange
The Camel Exchange is where you can pick up a doodle, play with it, and then pass it back for others to do the same. It’s an open house, you are welcome to join in. The point of it is to have fun, collaborate with others, explore, experiment. The end result doesn’t have to be perfect, it’s the taking part that matters.
(doodle history: caroline, johnnynorms, paintchip)
How do I participate?
Just pick up any picture from anywhere on the home page or archives, add to it, change it, whatever you want, and then post it to your website, blog, flickr, or wherever. Then let us know the URL for the picture's location by leaving it in the Camel Comment Box. You could also contribute a starting picture as well.
If you would like to join the Camel Exchange group, and be able to post things for yourself, it's easy - just send your email address to -------. Your email is needed to send you a blogger invitation - it will strictly NOT be passed on or divulged to any other party. An initial contribution of some sort is also preferred!

More about how it works, or The Rules
There are no limits to the ways in which you can add to a doodle – anything from computer art to pencils and paints on a printed copy.
Each collaboration has a running list of the people that have added to it, starting with the originator. You are free to reproduce an image on your own blog, but the list of contributors should always be included with it, as well as a link to the Camel Exchange. (Group members, when you are posting a next stage picture, please could you make each previous contributor's name link to their relevant posting - as in the examples above & below. Mostly this is taken care of by copying the list from the last stage...)
If you contribute artwork to this blog, you should be comfortable with the idea of allowing anyone to alter it without consulting you. If you submit some art to the Camel Exchange, you are agreeing to relinquish normal artistic control as regards copyright license. Normal copyright ownership laws apply in that original artwork belongs to each creator. I assume that the collaboration belongs to all of the collaborators on that particular piece of work.
We support freedom of expression but the administrators of the Camel Exchange reserve the right to draw a line and reject contributions if it becomes absolutely necessary. A line will not be drawn lightly though!

These three monsters are the consequence of a game three of us played last night. Parts were drawn by Jim, Willz and me. We folded the paper so the next person could just see where to join on to but not what had already been drawn.

tooting car moon
doodle history: ian russell, ian russell*
Farook the fish vendor realises his dreams of a better life following an incident on a blistering day in the souk while tooting car moon is relieved to chill his noggin.
*not the same ian russell, but an older version with mild amnesia over any subconscious notions of what the original was about...
