I love to draw and trade Artist Trading Cards.
These little pieces of artwork are better known as ATC’s.
Artist trading cards are the size of a baseball trading card and collected by many.
I tend to use a lot of different mediums for my Artist trading cards but my fave is Copic Markers.
These markers are alcohol based and blend beautifully together.
I also love watercolors and colored pencils as well.
How my Artist trading cards collection started
If I remember clearly I think I found out about artist trading cards on Flickr.
I used to be on Flickr daily looking for inspiration and enjoying other peoples artwork.
Shortly after that I found the website Atcsforall.
I joined and started trading my little artist trading cards for other peoples work.
On the website you can choose to trade with individuals or join in group swaps.
Swaps are a lot of fun and I have even hosted a few over the years.
A great thing about the site is that you can rate people you trade with.
If someone does not send you the cards you can rate them and then
others will know to be careful when trading with them too.
It really helps keep the community happy.
If you are into art you should really go check it out.
It is FREE!
