ATCs: In the Style of Rossetti

I participated in another Art 101 swap on Illustratedatcs.com.  October’s featured artist was Dante Gabriel Rossetti.  I’ve always enjoyed the Pre-Raphaelites, so I thought I would try my hand at making a few cards.    As you can see, I had mixed success.

On a side note, I just found out that a couple of my cards will be featured in an upcoming edition of ArtTrader Magazine.  It’s a lovely online mail art magazine (in PDF format) that features mail art for trade such as ATCs (Artist Trading Cards), ACEOs, art journals, chunky books, altered art and altered art books.
I’m so excited and pleased that my cards will be included.

Trading My Cards

Hi there everyone. Last week I started trading my art cards. It’s a blast. I’ve traded almost every card I’ve made. I made a few today. Here are two I made using my new comic book style:

Just a quick touch-up

I’ve already traded the one on the right. Minutes after I posted it, I had someone offer a wonderful piece for it. Is that cool, or what?

I’ve also been working on a portrait swap with Ujwala over at Draw the Line. I can’t wait to share that withMysterious woman you all.

Thanks for coming by and checking out my work. If it weren’t for your comments I wouldn’t have started trading these cards. So I am very grateful to you all.

Until next time, take care of yourselves. For all of you in the U.S. have a great Fourth of July.
