Artwork above is my version of the "Japanese Geisha Skinny" Created 7/4/2010 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Japanese Geisha are extremely beautiful and talented. They are intelligent, poised, colorful, and at times controversial. Lets make a gorgeous Skinny to show off that inner and outer beauty!

"Geisha are professional hostesses who entertain customers through various performing arts as "gei" means arts or performances, and "sha" means people in Japanese. Geisha are not either ordinary hostesses or prostitutes. They patiently went through extensive training to become geisha and keep improving their skills by taking many lessons. ...Geisha are trained in a number of skills: traditional Japanese dance, singing, playing instruments like shamisen (three stringed instrument), flower arrangement, wearing kimono, Japanese tea ceremony, calligraphy, conversation, alcohol serving manners, and more." ~~Taken from gojapan.about.com

We are gonna make 1 Skinny for 1 partner. This is sender's choice obviously, so you can get started right away! We will have 2 weeks to create for this swap. Must be standard size (3" X 5") and sturdy. This Geisha Skinny can be any media style as long as time was put into making it. Send artwork you would like to receive.

For those who don't know a skinny is just like an ATC (altered trading card) only a different size. It's 3" x 5" and it is basically a miniature work of art. It can be made any type of media (collage, painting, drawing, 3d art) all built on top of thin cardstock, or cardboard - think cereal box. .. hope this helps!!!

Newbies welcome with at least 5 completed AND rated swaps, plus a well filled-out profile. No 1 or 3 ratings in the last 3 months, if you do please PM me first before signing up. Other swappers with a rating of 4.87 or higher. No recent no-send's and no FLAKERS! I will check each profile and will ban if I feel you do not meet the requirements or seem suspicious in any way.

Please have fun, and enjoy!!

P.S. Yes I am aware there is also a Geisha ATC swap going on around the same time. I wanted to make a Skinny with the same theme, and make the swap more newbie friendly!
