Sign Up/Withdraw By : March 20
# Participants: 25
# Cards: 3 for 3
Any DARK ART in ATC form





Ah, distinctly I remember it was in the bleak December,
And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
Eagerly I wished the morrow; - vainly I had sought to borrow
From my books surcease of sorrow - sorrow for the lost Lenore -
For the rare and radiant maiden whom the angels named Lenore -
Nameless here for evermore. (from The Raven, Edgar Allen Poe)

Dark Art. Lost Lenore? Dying embers? Goth? Blackness and bleakness? This swap is a three for three swap of DARK ART ATCs, HAND DRAWN, HAND PAINTED/COLORED, HAND INKED. Done by hand. You may embellish, if you must, but keep the embellishments light and flattish. Please no porn!

Last date to sign up: March 20
Art in my hands by: April 24, I usually have a very brief grace period for procrastinators because there always are some! I'll mail by April 30 as U.S. postage is going up in May.

Limited to 25 artists. U.S. artists please enclose one 41 cent postage stamp. Artist who are outside the U.S. are my guests. Please include your real name and user name and any other information you would like on the back of your art.

I'm sorry but I have to withdraw from this swap. I've been in the hopsital the past few days and am now home for a 4-6 week bed-rest recovery period. I'm really not feeling up to making art at the moment so think it is best to withdraw! I hope you understand. THANKS!

Pamitha
03-18-2008, 03:11 AM
No problem, Artzy. We all wish you well and hope that your recovery is quick and painless. Perhaps we will see you in other swaps. Take care.

Egod! Those are terrific! You rock!

Chronata
03-27-2008, 10:36 PM
I felt terrible because I completely forgot I had signed up for this swap!

But more snow today put me in a foul dark mood...which in turn inspired me to create some darklings...
Here is a quartet of Vampire portraits...each one in a different style!

Now...I'm done with Dark! Bring on the Spring!!!! (please?)

Pamitha
03-29-2008, 10:26 PM
Oh, goodie! Darklings! And, yes, please...... bring on the sun!

Here's the last one, a trifold: Poe's Chamber. Please pm me your address. The color that appears to be almost pink in the chamber is really tan.

Pamitha
04-09-2008, 12:34 AM
Wow! I may have to grab that one for myself....that's the perk of being a host! Egod, that is one terrific work of FINE art!!!!!

egod

I'm so glad you like it. I had had it in mind for sometime, and tonight, I just did it! It's a little rough, but I kind of like it that way!

Natasha
04-10-2008, 04:55 PM

Listen, artists. I always allow a little bit of grace time to make sure all art is in. I'm glad to hear that more art is coming my way. I'll leave feedback as soon as it arrives. It will be fun to see all of the ATCs in person!

Natasha
04-14-2008, 06:29 PM
Thanks Pam. I didn't draw the skeletons though. I wish I did have that ability.

Pamitha
04-15-2008, 02:02 PM
I have absolutely splendid ATCs in my hands from egod and dragoness. My goodness, you artists put the bar VERY high. The ravens and the gargoyles are to die for!!!!! (Pardon my Dark Art alliteration!!!)

Pamitha

Pamitha
04-25-2008, 03:46 PM
I'm sure you don't mind if we wait a few days for Redplantlady's art to arrive from across the water. There are a few others out, too. Thanks for your patience and understanding!

art4mysanity
04-25-2008, 04:11 PM
I don't mind waiting for the other participants' art to come in - the larger the swap pool the more diverse the returns will be. I'm all for that.:jiggy:

redplantlady
04-27-2008, 09:09 AM
