Layer Tennis

Layer Tennis is a live competition in which two designers swap a file back and forth in real time, progressively adding layers and revising the artwork. Their "volleys" are posted live while a third person provides smart and/or smart-alecky commentary. Check out all the previous matches and the ones to come at Layer Tennis HQ.
