Are you looking for a penpal who likes to draw/paint? Someone who you can exchange drawings with, talk about your favourite art style and mediums and have drawing challenges with? In short: Someone to get creative with? Then this is the swap for you!

The goal of this swap is to find a new penpal or two. So if you're just looking for a one time swap, then this swap is not for you. You have one partner who you will send the following:

  • A drawing/sketch/painting that you did
  • A letter, so your partner can get to know you. If you don't know what to write about, here are some questions you could answer in your letter: Who are you, what's your job, where do you come from? Since when have you been drawing? What's your favourite medium to draw with? What's your favourite style? What's your favourite color? Why would you like to have an artistic penpal?...
  • Send this in a decorated envelope! You can draw, collage, do calligraphy, use washi tapes and stickers, etc. Just make sure the envelope draws your partner's eye when they receive it in the mailbox.

Make sure to include your address somewhere, so your partner can reply to you. Since you are sending one letter and receiving one from a different person, there are two chances for you to find a great penpal!

The rating requirement for this swap is 4.98 and you need to have at least 5 rated type 2 or 3 swaps to participate. Please take this seriously and put some effort into creating something pretty for your partner. If you have any questions, message me!

Have fun everyone!
