Artist Trading Cards

I have been making ATCs for gosh- over 12 years now.  I use to be regular about taking pictures of them but not so anymore.  It is fun to look back at some of these.
I love the whole idea of trading cards- not to be sold but traded.  The small size is challenging but yet isn't near as intimidating as other larger art works can seem at times.  It really is amazing what one can do in this 3 1/2" X 2 1/2 " size.
I am in two different groups that trade right now.  One I am the only male- pretty common in the mixed media world.  The other one is new and it is all guys- that's fun for me.
Think I will make some more right now!


  1. Thanks for sharing these. You are so talented at creating a world in 3.5 x 2.5 inches. I agree with you about being in an ATC group. It is great fun and challenging especially when a theme is agreed upon and must be executed. Can't wait for December!

  2. Oh I love these Terry! Fantastic! I love our little group. In FACT, I think I will go make some now as well. Ahhh what to create???

  3. i'm loving these portrait-like cards...they are so forthright, sort of like photo-booth photos.
