Einstein has such a remarkable face. I enjoy drawing him. Who wants to join me in drawing/painting this unique face?


Now for the boring but important bits:

All cards must be 2.5" x 3.5" and your best work only.

If you have to drop out, I totally understand, but please let me know. No cards and no communication will result in a neutral iTrader.

Each card should be sent in it’s own plastic sleeve.

Please include username and real name on the back of your cards, so we can leave Rep Points for you.

I’ll provide the envelopes. Please send a LARGE address label with your name and address CLEARLY typed or written on.

I will pay for the first 5 people, the others, please include $1-$2, but if you cannot, don’t let this stop you playing.

It would be great if you posted your cards to the thread to inspire us.

An extra card for the host (me) would be wonderful, but not at all obligatory.

Please post to the thread when you mailed off your cards so I can watch out for them.

Please send me a PM if you need my address. It has changed since December 2010.

Maybe it's all the wild hair, or his droopy eyes, this guy's face has such character!

pixiecorpse
03-01-2012, 04:31 PM
I wonder when I'll stop getting excited about being first to sign up!
Yay I'm totally in!!!

Joss
03-01-2012, 04:40 PM
Yay you sure are in! Welcome pixiecorpse.

lea67000
03-01-2012, 05:05 PM
I'll give it a try (I have UK stamps for you, so you can let the free postage space someone else).

Joss
03-01-2012, 06:37 PM
Fantastic, welcome lea67000.

Amerasu
03-01-2012, 07:51 PM
Oh, I love Einstein! Please count me in :)

I think I have some UK postage here too.

marilou
03-02-2012, 05:46 AM
I will be lurking this time. Will try something out and when I succeed I will join.

Joss
03-02-2012, 06:44 AM
I am so thrilled to have you in my swap Amerasu. Welcome.
I know you'll be back Marilou, his face is so unique and I think you will have fun doing something- try abstract - it works too.

meredithu
03-02-2012, 08:25 AM
Sign me up, this one sounds fun!!

Joss
03-02-2012, 08:50 AM
Yippee, welcome meredithu.

Amerasu
03-02-2012, 05:10 PM
I finished one card! 3 more to go, so many styles in my head, lol. I think I could easily make 10 Einsteins and enjoy them all. He has such an expressive and fun face.

mzspurslasso

meredithu
03-02-2012, 06:20 PM
Amerasu- such fine fine work!!!

JoyFlower
03-02-2012, 06:58 PM
Great subject for a swap!! Count me in!

Amerasu
03-02-2012, 07:07 PM
Thanks, Meredith! It's such a great theme. :)

Joss
03-02-2012, 07:14 PM
That is fabulous Amerasu, what a great start to our swap. And I agree totally- his face lends itself to all sorts of permutations.
Welcome JoyFlower, so glad to see you here too.

MelanieS
03-03-2012, 04:41 AM
I have to join...I had a friend who used to call me Einstein, because I had a t-shirt with him on it. And also, we named our 1st fur baby "Einstein", and called her "Steiner" for short. I miss her, she was 18 years old when she passed. :(

Joss
03-03-2012, 07:03 AM
Welcome MelanieS. Bet your friend called you Einstein because you are super clever! Did you ever get a new furry 'Steiner'?

pixiecorpse
03-03-2012, 09:03 AM
Wow amerasu! That's a fab picture!!! I've got mine sketched out just need to decide which way I'm taking them now :D

Joss
03-03-2012, 10:00 AM
I am so thrilled at all the enthusiasm I see, think I will also do some Einstein this weekend. LOL.

jo.on.the.go
03-03-2012, 10:08 AM
Me, me, me! I am sort of an E = mc squared geek, but I don't really have that much energy most of the time!

Joss
03-03-2012, 10:44 AM
Yipppee, wlecome my E=mc squared geekie friend!

FlyingPhoenix
03-03-2012, 08:37 PM

TxCat
03-04-2012, 09:06 PM
He's one of my heroes and I need some practice with portraits. Please count me in?

spineofafish
03-04-2012, 10:55 PM
Sounds rather like a blast. May I join up?

Joss
03-05-2012, 10:36 AM
Yippeee, two more 'victims' LOL.
Welcome TxCat and spineofafish

Amerasu

FABULOUS work, Sal! You put my Albert's to shame. ;)

pixiecorpse
03-06-2012, 07:02 AM
Woo! He looks wonderful amerasu!!!!

Joss
03-06-2012, 11:12 AM
Fantasmagorous Einstein Amerasu!

marilou
03-06-2012, 11:16 AM
woooow Amerasu, this is a wonderful Einstein.
I tried all day, and if you look at my sketches, nobody can tell what it is about,
could as well be a spider or something scaring. Sorry Joss, this is to hard
for my simple skills.

Joss
03-06-2012, 03:12 PM
No problem Marilou- you said you would try first before joining. Keep practising! LOL

pixiecorpse
03-06-2012, 04:00 PM
I'm just doing mine now so you might want to hang on until you see mine posted before you decide :biglaugh:
And your not wasting time by trying, all practice is good practice :D

pixiecorpse
03-06-2012, 05:20 PM
I was so excited to show you! Mine are in the gallery just need to back them, ones for the march pat :D

Joss
03-06-2012, 06:17 PM
Ha ha I forgot that I asked for Einstein in the March PAT too. They are great pc. Thanks so much for playing.

pixiecorpse
03-06-2012, 07:06 PM
Yay glad you like them! Thought I'd mix it up a bit with styles and different ages too :D

FlyingPhoenix
03-06-2012, 08:20 PM
Just a question...would scratchboard work for this, as it starts out as a drawing? No big deal if not, just was curious.

Amerasu
03-06-2012, 08:39 PM
Pixiecorpse, they look great! :)

JoyFlower
03-06-2012, 08:42 PM
I love that people are using varied mediums and styles - inspiring!!

pixiecorpse
03-07-2012, 07:12 AM
Thank you amerasu!

Ooh joss please can I have your address so I can send you the cards?

Joss

Sure, will pm you right now. Thanks for playing.

Jojo's cards arrived today and they are fantastico! Wowsers. Thanks for playing sis!

Kiddio55
03-15-2012, 11:18 PM
Joss...my cards are finished and will be on their way tomorrow. I would have loved to take more time on them but something came up that is going to keep me away from the site for a while. I'll be having open heart surgery next week and will be absent for a while. I had a hard time getting a likeness...but I did 3 plus a hostess card. The "Baby Einstein" is an extra one for you Joss. He is something I've had around for a while and I never really knew what to do with him. I figured since you like Einstein...maybe you'll like him

lea67000
03-16-2012, 12:35 AM
I'd like to withdraw please, cards just don't come out as I wish.

Joss
03-16-2012, 11:41 AM
Connie, they are just WONDERFUL! I think you 'got his face' perfectly- and as for the 'baby Einstein- Yay!! Thanks so much for playing in my swap, and you know you will be in my thoughts next week and my prayers too.

Joss
03-16-2012, 11:41 AM
Totally understand Lea- thanks for letting me know.

JoyFlower
03-16-2012, 12:00 PM
Kiddio... Those are BEYOND fabulous!!!!

pixiecorpse
03-16-2012, 12:39 PM
Wow! Kiddio! I'd hate to see how fabulous they would be with even more time!!!! They totally rock!!!
You'll be in my thoughts and sending big hugs your way! And you'll be back in no time ;)

Genxster
03-16-2012, 01:06 PM
Amazing cards Kiddio. You'll be in my thoughts next week. Praying for a successful procedure and a quick recovery. Hugs to you!

DADAology

Fabulous cards DADA!

I'm so impressed with the work being done! Makes me want to take lessons from everyone! :yes:

DADAology
03-17-2012, 01:47 AM
Thanks Joy...

Kiddo your cards are just gorgeous....you will be in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I pray peace and comfort around you and ask the angels to guide your surgeons hands and pray for healing and a speeding recovery. God Bless. Know we all will be with you in spirit cheering you on. Annette

pixiecorpse
03-17-2012, 02:59 AM
Ooh DADAology those are fantastic!!!!
I agree Joyflower! I don't think any of us are going to be disappointed with the cards we receive :D

Joss
03-17-2012, 05:43 AM
OMG Annette, those are amazing! I will really have to 'push the boat out' when I do mine for this swap. I am more than excited about these results. Everyone has made an extra effort with their cards. WOW!

Amerasu
03-17-2012, 01:04 PM
Kiddio and DADA, your card sets are amazing!!! I am so happy Joss made an Einstein swap, lol :)

If you ever do more scientists, count me in. I collect them :)

FlyingPhoenix
03-17-2012, 09:15 PM
WOW! Awesome cards!

Just thought I'd say that mine went postal today (had to show off to some friends).

MelanieS
03-18-2012, 03:35 AM
Welcome MelanieS. Bet your friend called you Einstein because you are super clever! Did you ever get a new furry 'Steiner'?

Funny you should ask, but we did get a new kitten, she's not a kitten anymore, that looked exactly like Steiner! White tabby, with dark stripes, & blue eyes. We named her "Suki" for her looking maybe having Siamese in her.

Joss
03-18-2012, 06:02 AM
Yahoo, can't wait to see them FP.
I think Steiner is such a cool nickname for Einstein!

pixiecorpse
03-18-2012, 10:20 AM

JoyFlower
03-20-2012, 11:43 AM
Our church "adopted" a local elementary school. We had services there Sunday, then did several service projects. I was part of a team that walked through praying for the staff and students. One of the teachers had put up several wonderful big Einstein posters and various quotes around his room. Awesome!

pixiecorpse
03-20-2012, 01:00 PM
Yippee! I'm soooo glad they got there safely! :D

Joss
03-21-2012, 11:16 AM
Einstein has such a people friendly/grandfatherly/artistic face JoyFlower. Every time I look at him, I see a different aspect.
Today the marvellous cards arrived from FlyingPhoenix. Ooh these returns just keep getting betterer and betterer!

Terri F

Oooh I hope that one's for me. I simply adore it. As a host one is always fortunate to get extra cards from players, but with this swap, I am really spoilt for choice. Whew, lucky old me!

pixiecorpse
03-30-2012, 06:38 AM
We're all going to be happy with our returns for this swap! I can't wait to host my first to get my greedy mitts on potential host cards :D only a few days to go yippee, can't believe I've only been here almost 90days feels longer in a good way of course :D

Joss
03-30-2012, 06:56 AM
I am looking forward to seeing your theme, hope I can do it. Hosting is fun- with the hard work and cost. If I can help you in any way Pix, give me a shout!

Yes, I think I will have to use my old one: fantasmaglorious!
What about superblysupreme?
Then there's wonderfullymagical, and gorgeousosupreme. Can you think of any more pix?

While I'm waiting for the post to get off its rump and send my things where they belong (something appears wrong with the US post, I just read that one person living one state away from the hostess send her cards nine days ago and it had still not gotten there; I mailed these almost a month ago) I will share.

pixiecorpse
05-05-2012, 03:17 AM
They are fantastic txcat! I'm keeping my fingers crossed they hurry up for you!

Joss
05-05-2012, 07:00 AM
They rock TX, and I start getting so 'antsy' a week before the end of my swaps, as I know people have sent cards and they are floating betwen me and them somewhere midair over the sea. Eeeeek, can't wait to see these IRL. Thank so much for playing.

JoyFlower

Nice work, TxCat!

pixiecorpse
05-05-2012, 09:32 AM
I love the fact that even when we choose the same image they look sooooo different! I'd be doing a runner with these cards if I was you Joss! ;)

Joss
05-05-2012, 09:39 AM
How do you know I am not pc? Wanna meet me at Victoria Station in London on 17th May?

05-07-2012, 08:57 AM
Hehe its very tempting! Wondering if hubby would forward the card for my swap to an undisclosed exotic location hehe :D

Joss
05-09-2012, 11:51 AM
Yippeee, TxCat's cards arrived today, and they rock! I have to keep the- Insanity card- as it suits me perfectly!

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. LOL

Soon be time to sort them out and send returns, and I cannot wait for that exciting few hours spent wallowing in all this glorious art.

05-11-2012, 08:43 AM
Hehe now I have visions of you rolling around on a carpet of einsteins :D

JoyFlower
05-11-2012, 02:20 PM
Seems my cards got lost in transit somewhere.... :(
But it's okay - I have SO enjoyed seeing all the wonderful cards created for this swap! Lots of fantastic art!

Joss
05-15-2012, 09:26 AM
Tomorrow is the final day -yay, I am soo eggsited. Never mind, JoyFlower, these things happen- will send you a few 'hostie' cards anyway.
Thanks so much everyone for playing in this fabulous swap! Wait till you see your returns!

You're beyond darling, Jossie!

Joss
05-16-2012, 11:23 AM
Yay the final day has come at last. I have never been in this position before where I literally cannot choose my hostie cards- they are all so amazing. The quality in this swap was higher than any I have ever hosted and many I have ever seen or been part of.
Thank you all so much for playing in this highly successful swap. I will be sending them out very soon, but for now -am still drolling over each and every one of them!

Joss
05-18-2012, 04:49 PM

Anyway....back to the amazingness that is my envie of brainiacs! And such bright sparks on such a beautiful day! Thank you joss,mikeatc and flying phoenix for your colourful and exciting alberts they all totally rock! And thank you Joss for being our wonderful hostess :D

I apologize for taking so long to get back to the artists; as I've mentioned elsewhere, I had some health issues which ate up most of last month and are now chewing on June. Thank you ShawniCaitlin, FlyingPhoenix, and Meredithu for the wonderful cards!
