My first ATC

The last 18 months I have been more active on the internet (i.e. Illustration Friday) and I visited a lot of other artist's blogs. One thing I stumbled upon was "ATC" - and I became curious about this. ATC stands for 'Artists Trading Cards'. Some have huge collections of these cards.
There is only one rule: the cards must be 3.5" by 2.5" (8,9 cm by 6,4 cm) - the same size of a modern baseball card.
I liked this concept and I thought it was a challenge to create something that small. So there it is: my first ATC:

3.5" by 2.5" (8,9 cm by 6,4 cm), Derwent Colorsofts on 160 gr/m2 paper


  1. Mooi die verschillende kleuren rood! :)

  2. Wat een leuk initiatief is dat.
    Mooi de kersen. Je krijgt er zo in in. De lichtschittering is ook goed gemaakt. Dit heb je gedaan met pastelkrijt/potlood?
