Artist Trading Cards
Hey guys! I just wanted to share with you this new found art thing I learned about. Apparently there is this whole movement that started in Switzerland in 1996 where artists started creating these cards for fun and traded them to each other. They usually use all kinds of mediums not just drawing or painting but mixed media too. I chose to start off with more traditional comic type illustrations because thats what i love! I plan on trading these as well as giving them away as bonuses from time to time with purchases at my store. Tonight i did my first three and I had a lot of fun with it. It's something i can do real quick and experiment with colors and mediums without feeling too tied down to a perfect art piece! I may also eventually make some sets for duplication if it seems people are into them. But for now it's just a fun easy art project. Hope you like!

If your interested in making some of these and trading with me and others email me at Plex@PlexHop.com or just comment to this post! I plan on starting a group of peeps to trade with from time to time for fun. Don't worry if you don't consider yourself an artist you can still try your hand at it. It will be fun!!!
Also let me know what you think of my first three!
