new world record. The midget wore boots with heels in the drawing, but
measurement was taken from the soles of his feet to the top of his head.

Appreciation Society gathering in New York City. He drew using a
Sharpie marker. Dan Rollman and Corey Henderson were present to
witness and measure the drawing.
Nine people participated in a 900-meter exquisite corpse relay race,
a new world record. The first participant ran 100 meters and drew part
of a person on their t-shirt. The shirt was then transferred to the next

while running. This was done repeatedly, with each person running 100
meters, until the drawing of the person was complete.
The record was set on June 17, 2009 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The relay
participants were Jessica Dunn, Lindsay Gerlach, Courtney Hacker,
Flounder Lee, Paul Miller, Kurt Nettleton, Kyle Channing Smith, Victoria
Son and Courtney Ware. Lamar Richcreek was present as a witness.
