ATC: Cowboy Boots

ATC: Cowboy Boots
Watercolor, ink, gel pens

IF: rescue

Went along with Illustration Friday again for a change. This week's theme is rescue.

Our cat always chases our rabbit and I always laugh my @$$ off when she (the rabbit) outsmarts him (the cat). Girl powerrrrrr!

Mixed media: watercolor, ink, oil pastels

Made these for a friend in the USA.

Rocking Rainbows

Had some fun with the rainbow theme here. The last three ATCs were done for a swap. The one above those (with the red shoes) was done as a thank you for the swap host and the top one - Fruitloop Fun - was done for... well, fun.

I love color!

Watercolor, ink, colored ink, gel pens

Random ATCs

Did some more ATCs. I really love making those tiny cards. Very cool to do.
Most of them are done with watercolor, ink and gel pens, though the latter is not always used.

Summer feet I did for a MMH-thread (Make Me Happy). Someone wanted shoes and so I designed these.

Did this one because I long for summer and sun and warmth.

This was inspired by James Bond. Casino Royale was on the telly the other night. So that's why.

Felt like being nationalistic, haha. I really like how these turned out. The stuff that's sticking out of the clogs is straw, because that's what farmers used in winter to keep their feet (slightly) warmer. The three Xs on the clogs are the weapon of Amsterdam.

Feet inspired by Michael Jackson. On Atcsforall.com these lasted about 5 minutes before they were traded... Haha.

Whimsical Feet II

Made two more funny feet for ATCs.

Done with watercolors, ink and gel pens.

At the beach. These are shy feet (they just saw hunky hot legs from a life guard).

Soccer fun. These are scared feet, because of what mom will say about the lost shoe...

Fun with oil pastels

After reading an article in ArtTrader Magazine #2, I was inspired to take up my old oil pastels. Wonderful and messy stuff! Love it!

Also had some fun with animals and sunglasses. This one's my favorite.
Done with ink on marbled paper.


A candy ATC.

Done with Prisma colored pencils.

Two more

Two more ATCs. The sad one ("But why? II") has already been traded. The flower has not. Both were done with watercolors. The flower is in ink.

I found out about this fantastic concept, Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs), and joined this fantasic website! I love it to death! If, after checking out these, you have become enthusiastic and more curious, check also the link to the left of this blog: Art Trader Magazine. This is a free, online magazine that deals with mail/trading art. It rocks!

Anyway! Below are some examples of my ATCs. Did them with watercolors and sometimes ink as well.
