True Colors ATC
I made this very colorful ATC today. I'm really not very satisfied with it, but I did give it my best shot. Colored pencils are still more difficult than charcoal in my book. It's for a swap at Illustrated ATCs entitled Colorful Stylized Portraits. I'm much more please with a couple others I did for the swap. You can see them here and here. I found iATCs last month. It's a juried site, so you have to be voted in by a panel. I really hope my cards measure up. The swaps there are very inspiring. My first swap card returns are in the mail. They may even arrive as early as tomorrow.

Up & Running!

As the saying goes, "Out with the old and in with the new!" New computer that is. I'd hoped to get back to blogging as soon as I returned from Art & Soul, but my old computer had other ideas. My new one came this week and it's so nice and shiny. I usually don't get this way about "things"(or at least I like to tell myself I don't) but it's been 7 years since my last computer purchase. At this point I am enamored with my brand new toy. Tomorrow I'll share about what I've been doing art-wise, but I just wanted to dedicate today to my new toy.
