Sometimes you have a scrap of something you just know will come in handy, or is too good to let go of. It waits around until its turn comes. Here are a couple of examples.
This animal was originally just a random ink blob surrounding an odd-shaped white section (the head part). I immediately saw it as a head, but didn’t get around to doing anything with it until one night, the scrap fell out of my leftover box. I got out my pen and made him a body. Next stop – ATC.
This is a two for one leftover meal – the card was painted for another purpose but not used, and the legs were a try-out sketch for a bigger drawing. Put them together and here you have another ATC.
Here are a couple of artist trading cards featuring line drawings, plus an item done on a library card, from April 2020. Take a look.
This one features a drawing I did on a scrap of paper and later affixed to a card, along with some other papers.
Here is a tiny drawing I did as a try-out for an illustration I did some time ago. It was on another piece of paper that I cut out and glued to the cardboard backing, plus taking the opportunity to add more detail to it.
Here is a lugubrious fellow lurking. That’s pretty much all I know about him. Done in acrylic paints with pen-drawn features.
Here are a some ATC’s I made as part of my teaching duties at my mixed media class from earlier this year. I created them as part of our session on mail art and other social art (art meant to share), so that they could be part of a trading session our class did.
