slight problem…

29 Nov

so, i got the website over with only the most minor of glitches. and installing wp was a cinch. however, apparently my old blog is too big to import.

so, i guess i’ll just go from…. crap, i can’t say it.

i’ll just start again. 😉

i’ve been spending my non-study time making these little Artist Trading Cards. if you’ve never heard of them, they’re 2.5 in x 3.5 in cardstock or stiff fabric or whatnot which have been artified. ok, i know that’s not a word, but they could be hand drawn, sewn, stamped, collaged, digitally drawn or collaged, or whatever you can think of. then, they’re given away with your name and contact info and the title of the piece on the back. specifically, they are not to be sold, they are to be traded.

lots of places on the web organize swaps for these little suckers including swap-bot, my personal time suck. since they’re small they’ve really let me feel like i can take a lot of chances that i wouldn’t normally take. i’ve signed up for a few “hand-drawn” swaps (and only cheated a little on one) whereas normally i wouldn’t hand-draw anything if i could avoid it. i’m more the elephant in the snake sort of artist when it comes to hand-drawing.

also, i’ve gotten to play around with backgrounds and textures and collage and paint… it’s really a lot of fun and i can see ahead of me, far in the distance but still visible, the point where i break out of my 2.5 in x 3.5 in playpen.

in the meantime, here’s some of my work:
