Postcards may be any size or direction, and may be mailed naked, in a clear sleeve or in an envelope. Please include your artist info on ATC's and other art you create. ATC's are standard 2.5 x 3.5 inches, and may be oriented in any direction.

Is this same as pointillism?

Not necessarily. As other mediums, and techniques are allowed to be used in combination with the dots. And, the dots in dot painting aren't necessarily there to form or create the entire painting or image, they can be there to be seen as dots, not as an entire scene, etc. Like the difference between your eyes seeing the whole of the dots as an image versus your eye seeing the dots as part of the design of the piece.
