Sometimes i get discouraged by how expensive nice art supplies are...and that is usually about when i start drawing with whatever i find around the house. This usually includes Sharpie pens, Hi-Liter pens (higlighters) and colored markers. I really enjoyed making my art piece for the Halloween swap, so i thought i would make another one with a different theme! How about MUSHROOMS!

Are you a fun guy (or gal) who loves fungi? Then this is the swap for you!

Make a drawing or art piece using sharpies that features mushrooms or is mushroom themed. It could be of a specific variety (morels, amanita muscaria, chanterelles, etc), it could be retro styled mushrooms in a pattern, or a picture of fairies dancing amidst fairy ring mushrooms. It can be realistic or abstract. At least postcard sized, preferably a bit bigger though (you could use a full sheet of computer paper or cardstock). Spend a little bit of time on making the piece look really good, around 1 hour of work (less or preferably, more), but DON'T spend any money on it...this should be a CHEAP swap. Try to use things from around the house and if possible don't spend any extra money on supplies.

No ratings lower than 4.5, although newbies are welcome. I will angel a drawing to anyone who is flaked on...but DON'T FLAKE cause that ain't cool, man.

The only rules are 1.) SHARPIE MARKER should feature prominently in this piece, 2.) Try not to spend any money (except, of course, on shipping), and 3.) Make your drawing MUSHROOM themed!

I would love to be in this swap but I am too newbie! I have already drawn 2 mushroom themed sharpie art and am going to continue because I have found that I LOVE those little guys and it is something I can draw!

Ohhh, I just found out about this and missed out on signing up. Sounds awesome - right up my alley! If you host another one, I'd love a little PM reminder if that's sthg you don't mind doing. I often miss the 'newest swaps' as I'm in a completely different timezone to most of you swap-botters. :/ Thank you!

Have fun, mushrooms!
