I joined ATCsforall.com a few weeks ago. It’s amazing how therapeutic creating artist trading cards is for me. I guess everyone needs an outlet. For me, I need deadlines.

I end up surfing for ideas, reading books, …..and doing nothing. But the whole ATC thing has made art doable and accessible again. So they’ve been a real blessing. Here are some. Above are atcs for the “Matisse” swap. We were told to make cards in the style of Matisse. You can visit my gallery at atcsforall.com. My username there is “insanejane.”
