ATC Explosion #1

Seems like I’ve made about a million artist trading cards recently. So I’ve got some bulk views for you. I like the look of them all grouped like this. Colorful.

They are all done in acrylics on ATC-sized cards I cut from cereal, cracker, popsicle, etc., cardboard boxes.

    I love it when people can’t choose a favorite! Makes me feel good about the whole process. I can’t pick favorites myself. I highly recommend the ATC form of artmaking for people in small spaces or with little time, as you might be at school? You can use any technique, any materials, and it’s portable (sometimes I draw them, taking them in my purse). Good stress reliever…

    Guess what? I’m taking a fashion graphics class! I have to spend 5 hours a week in the studio learning how to draw in a whole new style. I love it! (This is how I’m keeping my creative side going 🙂 I l will have to learn more about ATC and will hit you up when I am ready! I don’t know what the method is but I know I love your work! (I rarely have time to read the text in blog posts and just go straight to the images…)

    The class sounds fantastic. What an opportunity – I love it when a new door opens like that.

    If you are ever interested in ATC’s just google it and you’ll find out all you need to know (it should take about one paragraph!) and plenty of people interested in exchanging them. Although I just like leaving them around, I don’t need to get one in return.

    Best of luck in the class. I hope we see some of your work.

    Yes, and as this video shows, you can use just about anything to make them. It’s fun to do in a group, and make several and then everyone trade. I have a great collection of all kinds of tiny artwork from doing this, both in person and in the mail!
