This paper describes a thesis exploring how computer programs can collaborate as equals in the artistic creative process. The proposed system, CoCo Sketch, encodes some rudimentary stylistic rules of abstract sketching and music theory to contribute supplemental lines and music while the user sketches. We describe a three-part research method that includes defining rudimentary stylistic rules for abstract line drawing, exploring the interaction design for artistic improvisation with a computer, and evaluating how CoCo Sketch affects the artistic creative process. We report on the initial results of early investigations into artistic style that describe cognitive, perceptual, and behavioral processes used in abstract artists making.
