Well the date is set and the postcards are on order, the reception menu is decided, and now all I have to do is finish the rest of the ATC's.
My 1-(wo)man show is from April 4 - May 1st.
I have designed 2 postcards:
(the back is the same for both)
Most of you have seen these, but here's a sample of what I'm showing. The theme; Backyard Birds, will be birds of Santa Barbara, their nests and their babies. I wanted to display them in a natural setting without losing the idea of the ATC. Most of the cards can be removed from their frames, so they retain the idea of ATC. The only caveat being that the owner of the coffee shop wants them to be for sale (as he gets a percentage, customary, and the whole idea of allowing art to adorn the walls) so theoretically they are not for trading....I have to say, most Baseball Trading Cards are not traded either....and you don't have to play baseball to collect them. So I suppose you shouldn't have to be an artist to collect Artist Trading Cards.
So here's what I have (at least what I've uploaded. I have alot more done than this)
I wish my dA friends could be there for the reception, it will be a dessert menu and coffee shop drinks. I am pretty excited about this one...and I have to thank ALL of you for your support, you guys are the BEST!!! (Check out
