    Blind Drawing II ATC Swap (Due September 22)

    Swap Title: Blind Drawing II ATC Swap
    Swap Due Date: Cards in my hands by September 22
    Signup/withdraw date: September 15
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3 OR 6 for 6
    Number of participants: Unlimited
    Media: Mixed (some HD required)


    Blind Drawing II ATC Swap

    Blind drawing is just what it sounds like: The most fun you’ve ever had in a swap in your entire life. Again.

    Okay, okay, for the purposes of this swap, blind drawing works like this: Close your eyes and draw a face. If the eyes hang off the cheeks and the eyebrows go halfway to the moon, that’s part of the fun, because now you’re going to use that drawing as the focal point for a wonderful, quirky, finished piece of art.






    Samples by AKMamaof2, novasmem, and themuppet

    Extra Special Swap Requirements
    • The face you draw is the BEGINNING of your ATC, not the final product. You must finish out the face and create a visually interesting background.
    • To finish the face, let its personality inspire you. Give it hair, a job, a back story, and/or some part of a body. Paint it, color it, give it a mustache, make it a mermaid with vampire teeth, or draw on it with gel pens. Have fun!
    • The background of the card can be hand drawn, painted, or collaged. You can cut out your face, as AKMama did in her example, and add stamps, ephemera, found poetry, and/or any techniques, as you would normally do in your art.
    • Don’t be surprised if you have to draw and finish more than three faces to get three cards you adore.
    • IF YOU SUBMIT AN UNFINISHED BLIND DRAWING ON A PIECE OF CARD STOCK, I WILL SUBMIT IT BACK TO YOU. Please finish your cards.

    Rules of the Road
    • All cards should be the standard size: 2.5” x 3.5”.
    • All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
    • All cards must be original, and each card must be different. Please do not make copies or submit prints.
    • Show off your talents. Send cards that took time and care.
    • Please don’t use hard, bulky embellishments that can upset postal machines.
    • No stickers, please.

    Mailing & Postage
    • When you're ready to mail, please PM me for my address.
    • Make sure your name, user name, location, and the swap name appear on the backs of all ATCs.
    • US Participants, include a SASE, business size, with enough postage to cover the mailing of your cards.
    • I will cover the first 10 international participants.
    • Please mail your cards early so they arrive on time.

    Returns
    - When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists.

    Playas!
