Artistic Communication Breakdown: Drawception

Here's how it works: the website shows you a phrase to draw or a picture to describe in a limited number of characters. Your response becomes part of a chain and when 12 people have drawn or described, the chain is complete and you can see where your contribution sits and just how much it deviated from the originator's intentions. Simple, creative and frequently hilarious. Drawception shall now accompany you through every working day. Some examples below.

I was sure the McDonalds reference I made would be wrong. Turned out it wasn't! But then somebody misinterpreted it right at the death.

"Ghost scares a sleeping sun" is just one of those phrases that don't crop up often enough.

"Embarassed totem pole" is the only possible description of that image even though it's clearly not what the artist intended.

Obviously superb.

And the most unexpected image of a pizza assaulting a tophat I've ever seen.
