ATCs (artist trading cards)

neat! ATCs (artist trading cards) are collectible, mini works of art, created in baseball card size and traded between artists. They aren't sold, just swapped & collected. Read more about ATCs here.

I read about them awhile back & thought it was a neat idea. This weekend I started making some to swap around. I'm working "on the cheap" using recycled boxes... but they are looking pretty cool. Each of my cards is unique and drawn/doodled with Micron pens.

Other artists have created cards with collage, painting, stitching, beading, poly-clay etc.. so there are an infinite number of possibilites. Anyhow, if anyone happening to read this creates ATCs and wants to swap, leave me a comment and we can swap mailing info by email.


  1. This is really cool! I just joined the email list this page linked to as well. Would love to exchange cards with you - you can email me at foxvox -at- foxvox dot org if you're interested. (I wrote the email out to avoid spambots.)

  2. Info is on the way. Thanks!

  3. *note - I have been creating and swapping cards since my post about ATCs. I have posted a page of my current ATCs, many of which are available for swapping.
