A lot of you may know that I do have a secondary hobby. Drawing, trading, and collecting ATCs.
Artist trading cards (ATCs) is a conceptual art project initiated by the Swiss artist M. Vänçi Stirnemann in 1997. He called it a Collaborative Cultural Performance. Artist trading cards are 2+1⁄2 by 3+1⁄2 inches (64 mm × 89 mm) in size, the same format as modern trading cards (hockey cards or baseball cards). They are self-made unique works or small series, signed and dated on the reverse by the artist/producer, exchanged and collected by the people who participate in the collaborative performance.
In other words, it is the international trading of tiny artworks. These artworks DO NOT need to be meuseum quality artworks. Your drawings would work as an ATC! You **think** your art is bad? It probably isn’t. You’ll never know unless you try.
We could all use some new hobbies during this time in society… a little something to distract us from other things. Why not give it a shot?
If you would like to see what it is all about, you can join me over at LDSA!
You can check out the Knowledge Base for anything questions you might have. If you see something missing, you can always start a “conversation” with me over there and I will explain the best I can.
See you there!
Oh… and one more thing. I do have a section for tagging. It is small, but it is there. However, it’s not for advertising. It’s for showing off your creations or offering up WWOs.
