Comic Strip ATC
Swap Coordinator:candlelady (contact)
Swap categories: Artist Trading Card (ATC)  Newbie 
Number of people in swap:13
Last day to signup/drop:November 10, 2008
Date items must be sent by:November 17, 2008
Number of swap partners:3

This sould be easy enough for everyone to enjoy! I will allow newbies with a filled out profile and others with a rating of 3.5 and above. International swappers are allowed to participate.

Make 1 ATC for 3 different partners for a total of 3 ATCs.

You must use a segment of a comic strip from a newspaper or magazine as part of the ATC. You can either use the original comic strip image or a photo copy of it. This will allow you to make multiple copies of the same card, if you choose. The remainder of the card should relate to the theme of the comic strip image. Please be creative and do not just cut out an image and stick it to a card.

Would facsimiles be Ok? (i.e., drawing or tracing a panel)

Wow!!! So sorry for the late response to this question. I'm still new to swapping, so I didn't even think about getting a message. As long as the true intent of the comic strip is represented, I don't have a problem with a tracing. My thinking is that with a comic strip from a newspaper and even with a photocopy, you get some double imaging (from the printing on the reverse side of the image) that bleeds through - which gives it it's character.
