Let’s do individual portraits of of those cultural icons: Elvis, Jesus and John. I’ll probably do John Lennon, but you could do JFK or any other famous John you like. Let’s try to come up with something original for this swap. Maybe think of Black Velvet painting from the 1960s for inspiration. Googly eyes would be fun too! Make 3 ATCs each for 2 swap partners. This is an international swap.

ATC is short for Artist Trading Cards. This is a great format for artists and creative people to trade their artwork. The rules are simple: 1. These cards must be 2.5�? by 3.5�? (the size of a baseball card). 2. They are traded but not sold. This is a free exchange of art. Pretty radical actually. 3. These are CARDS, they shouldn’t be flimsy. On the back, put your contact information. Please put your swap-bot name somewhere on the card or envelope so the receiver can thank you. You can also sign, date and add a title on the back. There are web sites and live trading session where folks exchange ATCs. You can see some of my ATCs on my favorite trading site (if you sign up, tell ‘em wackystuff sent you): http://www.atcards.com/gallery/browseimages.php?do=member&imageuser=1400

Hi folks. Thanks for joining in and trying something different. I like my themes to be a bit of a challenge. This usually inspires more interesting ATCs.

Mine are done and in the mail. I chickened out and did a rather straight Jesus, but my Elvis and and Lennon are wacky.

It WAS hard to mess with Jesus too much...funny how taboos crop up. I had the exact same reaction and wondered...will my partner be offended, will others who see it be offended...will Jesus be offended?

I sent a little something extra with Elvis. Jesus, some could be offended but not JC. As for John, iwent with a someone better know by his nickname "Doc".

I just got my envelope from wackystuff. How awesome. I love, love love all three. I just cracked up. What fun this has been! Mine aren't even in the same league as yours but I had a blast doing them. Thanks for the oppertunity for me to practice and to receive some cool art in return.

On a side note wackystuff, you come up with such festive themes that I'm always curious to see what everyone came up with. Have you ever thought of doing a Flickr group as a gallery for all the swaps you host? I bet that would be a heck of a group. If you ever do it...please let me know!

I almost forgot, I loved all the cool stamps on the envelope. It looked so exotic.

Sam, popart, Wow! I'm going to gush...I am thrilled beyond words. The "something extra" with Elvis is amazing. I will treasure it. All your cards are fantastic but you know which one I'm especially partial to. I laughed soooo hard. Thank you so much.

It sounds like we have one satisfied customer. LOL

Ray, thanks for the great cards. I especially liked the John Lennon (Yellow Submarine) watercolor.

Fantastic cards arrived from wackystuff and suzylucie so far. Thanks both! Wacky SO brilliant, you have a fantastic 'eye' for composition and all!! Thank you so much. Suzy if these are some of your first ATCs, I love them! You made me laugh out loud honestly, so very funny. Wheere did you get the morgue feet from.....it surely wasnt a postage stamp was it?!!! A really fabulous idea wacky this one, who's next on the idols hit list then? Pleeze!!!

I received my cards today from popart. Wow! They're very clever and well done. I especially like Jesus and the Free Will Wheel. Thanks. I'm a happy host.
