Emerging From the Background

These ATC’s were made in June, 2016. In constructing them, I took cards that had some sort of paint or collage background and found these people – I used a pen to bring them out, and there you have it – new friends? neighbors? workmates? fellow commuters? I could go on and on…

    These are fantastic. I’m making up my first batch of ATCs for a class I’m teaching in a little over a week. I was going to make some updated business cards, but you have inspired me to give these a go.

    World’s easiest art form, the ATC – forgiving and very small scale, so there is both a lot of scope for expression and yet little enough invested, time and material wise, to feel bad if it doesn’t go right at first. Are you planning to have the students swap? If so, I can give you my swap method as to how to get everyone to exchange, and to actually enjoy it (because some people are leery of letting go of their artwork at first, but, once they try it, I have never had anyone regret it).
