Artists Trading Cards (ATCs)


So, for a change of pace I've decided to try making a few Artist Trading Cards.

I made two series, the Standard American Encyclopedia (circa 1937) series, (“Goat”, at left is a part of this series) and Strange and Stranger. See them all at my flickr page.

UPDATE: I'm working on assembling these into a collage for the “Small” show at the High Falls Gallery in Rochester. Anybody local to Rochester should check out the gallery and the show, it's an open call with only a $15 entry fee.

Many artist do ACEOs and ATCs. Open your etsy store. These are wonderful!
I was collecting an Alphabet set. The artist promised to finish them. It is not going to happen.

Yours are unique!

Having all the books by Bantock that I have found--(missing a couple children's books from way back)---I do, of course, love Griffin and Sabine-- and this does speak in that manner--your work is amazing in many ways..

Thanks everyone! appeciate the kind words. I'm working on assembling the 3 animal encyclopedia ones in a frame for the upcoming "Small" show at the High Falls Art Gallery in Rochester, NY (I think it goes up in late May or early June).

I'm also contemplating another series from the encyclopedia of portraits...we'll see.
