I found some old Artist Trading Cards (ATC) from the Relik show, back in 2005. I love the idea of these little pieces of traded art that make their way between artists. Every group show should include these! My ATC cards shown here were printed onto transparency papers, sewn onto paper cards and decorated with flashy stick-on gems. They were super fun to make.
I gave this presentation on inspiration and methods for In a Time of Change: The Art of Fire community outreach night at the Morris Thompson Cultural Center in August, 2012.
I have been thinking about affordable art a lot lately as a way to increase beauty in the world. I stumbled upon this kickstarter free art machine project in Chicago and was inspired. I missed the funding period for their project but decided to submit some artwork anyway. I sent them these little guys, who were accepted and are hopefully now hanging on someone’s wall.
