    Hokusai Summer Vacation~Due September 30

    Due Date: September 30th
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Any/All

    Hokusai Summer Vacation SWAP/ATCs/OPEN MEDIA/Due: Sept 30

    I was just reading this great article (https://hyperallergic.com/391035/hok...in-the-bucket/) about the amazing Japanese printmaking artist Hokusai. You'll know when you see The Big Wave (below), who I mean.

    I thought a nice summer vacation ending project would be to do a few Hokusai ATCs. Please Join ME!

    Here's an image search link to get some ideas: https://www.google.com/search?q=hoku...w=1035&bih=716

    Here's a wiki page of him to learn more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hokusai

    Feel free to redo Hokusai images in your own style or do your own image in Hokusai style.
    Just please make each ATC different. They need to be the size of 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I will be trading media for media. That means if you send in hand drawn/hand painted will receive hand drawn/hand painted back. Collage/Mixed Media will receive Collage/Mixed Media back, etc. Please Private Message me with any questions regarding this.

    ATCs need to be in my hands either before or on September 8th. Late ATCs will be returned to the artist unswapped & risk getting a Neutral iTrader. Lack of communication and lack of ATCs will result in Neutral iTrader given. Please, please communicate.

    US SWAPPERS, please send a SASE. Postage will be whatever it cost you to send it to me.
    ****IF YOU SEND IN THICK OR BUMPY ATCS (MEANING EMBELLISHMENTS) YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE THE EXTRA POSTAGE (I think it is still 22 cents) TO HAVE THEM SENT TO THE ARTISTS RECEIVING YOUR ATCS. THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY & I WILL NOT SEND YOUR ATCS OUT UNTIL I HAVE GOTTEN THE EXTRA POSTAGE FROM YOU.

    All international participants will need to send either US $1 or US stamps for return postage. I have set up a Pay Pal account also.

    ALL INTERNATIONAL PARTICIPANTS NEED TO SEND A SELF ADDRESSED ENVELOPE OR LABEL TO GET THEIR RETURNS IN.
    Please label all your envelopes with your user name & swap name.
    Place each ATC in a plastic sleeve.
    An extra ATC on the subject would be greatly appreciated but is not mandatory. Please feel free to post your ATCs to the thread.
    If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me a Private Message or ask in the thread.
    Please Private Message when you are ready for my address.
    Most international mail will take anywhere from one to two weeks to arrive in WA. Please plan accordingly.
    On that same note; most mail here in the US can take anywhere from two days up to 10 days so please don't wait until the last minute to send your ATCS.

    Players, when you have received your return ATCs for the swap; please remember to leave I-Trader for the host & You Rock points for your fellow artists that you received cards from. I will have all players linked to their first post so that leaving You Rock points will be a breeze. I will leave I-Trader points for you as soon as I receive (on time) your swaps. Once again, please Private Message me with any questions you may have.

    This is a fun idea. Lurking for now.
    One can only dream of what never was
    and as for what "really is,"
    remember:
    it doesn't exist.

    Oh, that theme is great, I just saw a movie on him! I'll have to lurk though because that deadline is kinda fast and I might not be able to make it. Any chance you could extend it? I'll sign up if you move it to late September.

    I am in for this swap, please! I love this artist's work, finding it very peaceful.

    It's interesting distilling Hokusai into a style for my way of working. I've done flat and bright colors. With thin line work and pattern for a few. This is the first. Tiny Wave in a Stream.
