For this swap, you will make one standard size ATC (2.5 x 3.5 inches) for your partner.

Please have a rating of 4.9 or higher and absolutely no 1's or 3's in the last three months. Please send me a message before joining the swap if you are brand new to swap-bot. I will remove anyone from the swap that does not meet the above requirements before partners are assigned.

  • The card will be hand drawn and/or painted and the subject matter shall be Totoro.
  • Please use a paper that is a little bit nicer than plain copy paper and, if the paper is not very heavy, please mount it on a firm backing.
  • The ATC may be done in any sort of drawing or painting medium you wish. Please make sure to use a fixative spray if your medium can be easily smudged.
  • Finally, please put some time and effort into your work - remember, ATC stands for 'artist' trading card. Send out work you are proud of and have a hard time parting with. If you think you might rush through this card due to other obligations, please don't join the swap.

Please feel free to send a PM with questions or concerns. I don't check the swap page daily so sending me a message is the best way to get a quick answer from me.

Have a wonderful day!

I can't draw for the life of me, and really have no idea what totoro is, but the ATC in the picture is absolutely adorable!

@trula - Do you have access to Netflix, You Tube.com, & there are anime movie websites where you can see the "Totoro" character. "Totoro" is a large gentle forest creature who protects children from getting "lost in the woods," created by Studio Ghibli animators. These will be a fun swap as these ATC's can be share with children.

FYI: go to www.onlineghibli.com & click on image with title "My Neighbor Totoro" to see the Totoro characters. Enjoy!

So any characters from Totoro is acceptable? My absolute FAV is Neko-Basu/ Cat Bus! After all, Totoro himself doesn't does a whole lot in the movie... just standing around and grinning... Neko Basu is the one who does all the work LOL!

I love the Studio Ghibli films! I hope there will be an entire set of characters done in swaps! :)

Maybe Catbus needs its own swap too!

This swap is just for Totoro, himself - I'm afraid he's my favorite (though, Neko Basu is really, really tempting, cause he's super cute).

However, I really had no there were so many lovers of Miyazaki on swap-bot! I might do a series if this one goes well :3

And thank you Trula :3

Neko-Basu - Cat Bus is so cool, love it. Though creating as an ATC, the ATC would have to be turned long-ways to accommodate the special features of the Cat Bus. I'm a fan of some Miyazaki movies.

I was thinking a face close-up of Neko Basu, like a selfie-style LOL. Or I can do a selfie-style face shot of Neko Basu and Totoro together? Does it have to be completely Totoro alone?

KristinaLynn 01/ 1/2014 #

It doesn't have to be totoro alone... he just has to be there :3
