    Cave Art Swap: Due August 2, 2019

    Swap due date: August 2, 2019

    Number of cards: 3 for 3
    Number of participants: 25 maximum

    What’s on the walls? Animals? Aliens? Eclipses?

    Cave paintings are painted drawings on cave walls or ceilings, mainly of prehistoric origin. The paintings are remarkably similar around the world, with animals being common subjects that give the most impressive images. The earliest known cave paintings/drawings of animals are at least 35,000 years old and were found in caves in the district of Maros, located in Bantimurung district, South Sulawesi, Indonesia, according to datings announced in 2014.
    There are also examples of eclipses and other sky events. Aliens show up frequently as well.

    Here are some links to inspire you:
    http://www.smithsonianmag.com/histor...rld-180957685/
    http://www.bradshawfoundation.com/lascaux/
    http://www.oldest.org/artliterature/cave-paintings/

    Make three different cards although the theme and medium can be the same.
    Medium:. Hand drawn and hand painted medium. Feel free to use your imagination and unique style. All cards must be original ie no prints or copies.
    Most of all---Have fun!!!

    Requirements:
    *All cards should be standard 3.5” X 2.5” and at least one layer of card stock.
    *Cards should be flat.
    *Send cards in plastic sleeves.
    *Withdraw early if you can’t do the swap, late cards may be returned if they can’t be swapped out.

    Mailing and postage:

    *PM me for my address when you are ready to send cards.
    * Make sure your user name, location and swap name appear on the back of your ATC’s.
    *Include your username on your SASE.
    * International participants: I will pay postage for first 10 players. Please include an address label.
    *US participants: Include a stamped self-addressed envelope.

    Returns: When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for me and rep points for players.
    An extra card for the host is always appreciated but not required.

    Anyone want to play?

    I’ll play! I’m painting the cards right now! I took an Ancient Art History class a few semesters ago, and I loved those handprint paintings, so I’m trying to recreate them

    Actually, I'm going to change it to just lurking for now, because I started painting, and I am absolutely hating what I made. I don't want to struggle with the concept and end up at the deadline with no cards! I'll sign up for sure if I can perfect the cards a bit.

    I haven't received a reply in three days so I will assume that it is too late to sign up.
