NO DOTTED LINE: Making a remixable sex ed book

NO DOTTED LINE is a remixable sex ed book about healthy consent. It's made of lavish illustrations, created with libre graphics software, and every visual element is available for remixing and re-use. In good consent there is no "dotted line", no final deal - all is provisional; iterations are welcome as desires shift. This illustrated book likewise has no final version, and evolves with the instincts of its reader-writers. In this workshop I will introduce the first versions and we will play with the images, re-mixing them using free software (Inkscape + GIMP) and analogue collage. The project demonstrates a libre workflow in all senses of the word - promiscuous, consensual design created with free software and released for re-use.
