Wait

I’ve been obsessively making Artist Trading Cards for about a year now. In that year, I’ve made and traded several hundred cards (I haven’t kept track of exactly how many), and I’ve developed a style that I’m pretty happy with. I’m also a lot more comfortable with making art AND I have a fantastic collection of ATCs made by some amazing artists. All in all, it’s been really great for me.

Here’s a recent card, it’s one I’m particularly fond of, as all the elements are bits of things I found — the hand was on a piece of paper I picked up off the floor during an art class I took a few weeks ago. It’s called “Wait”:

Although I’m making different things now (altered books, tip-in pages, art journal pages), I think I’ll always love making these cards.
