1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Craft Swaps / Re: ONGOING ATC SWAP -- January 2018 (Sign-ups open all month) on: January 16, 2018 08:56:00 AM
I claim blupaisan for "TBD".

3 Claims | 0 Sent | 0 Received

I live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, so far North, I might as well be an honorary Canadian.  It's winter, and man, do I ever hate the snow and cold--I gotta relocate to a much warmer state one of these days . . .

I love video games, toys (both "boys" and "girls" varieties), mythology (all cultures/religions), monsters, the Sword & Sorcery (particularly Dungeons & Dragons) and Horror genres, books (adult's & children's), animals (especially kitties), nature, and women.  Nudity, violence, sex, gore, profanity, religion, politics, etc., don't bother me in the context of art, so, please don't worry that you're going to offend me when you express yourself.   Over/under-sized or thick/3-Dimensional ATCs are fine, as I don't keep them in a card album, so they don't need to fit into anything.  I don't have any allergies that would come into play with an ATC, so, use whatever materials you like.  Provided that you adhere to the spirit/intent of whichever of my themes that you choose, it doesn't matter to me what artistic style/approach/media you utilize.

I have a Pinterest account, but I never use it except to look at other people's images (I'm a voyeur like that).  However, if you want a pictorial peek at the types of things that I like, this photo gallery of my thrift store hauls, during the last quarter of 2017, speaks volumes (if some of the images don't work, it's Photobucket's fault, not mine!):
http://www.angelfire.com/ult/ace/assortments_2017d.html

My themes (in no particular order of preference).  Feel free to combine multiple themes into one card too, if you wish.

- Fuzzball from Captain EO (a red cat/butterfly/rat/monkey thing from Michael Jackson's old show at Disney Land/World).
- Shimmer & Shine genies.
- Frozen Anna and/or Elsa . . . I can't let it go!
- Gregory Horror Show characters.
- The LEGO Movie Wyldstyle and/or Unikitty.
- Rhythm gymnasts, especially with a ribbon, ball, or hoop.
- Madagascar Afro Circus/I Like To Move It.

- Adventure Time characters.
- The Goonies characters (Sloth, Chunk, & Mama Fratelli are my favorites).
- Sewing cards.
- LOL cats.
- Cutey Honey (aka Honey Kisaragi), heroine of the Japanese anime/manga of the same name.
- Betty & Veronica (comic book versions please, not the live action Riverdale actresses.)
- Rick & Morty (Rick is my favorite--I wish I had an alcoholic mad scientist grandpa!)
- Disney Fairies (Vidia, Rosetta, Fawn, & Dulcie are my favorites).
- Lalaloopsy doll characters.
- Heffalumps & Woozles.
- A Gary Larson Far Side style comic (don't copy one of his, make your own!)
- Elvira (Cassandra Peterson).
- A bestiary entry for a mythical creature (invent your own supernatural entity if you want to).
- Bella Sara horses (they're already cards to begin with!)
- Monster High Werecat Twins Meowlody & Purrsephone (you've gotta do them both; twins can't be split up!)
- Donkey (Eddie Murphy's character from Shrek).
- Jem Misfits (Pizzazz, Roxy, Stormer, Jetta, or Clash--the last is technically just a groupie, not a band member, but I don't care!)
- My Little Ponies G4 Rainbow Dash (pegasus or Equestria Girls humanoid forms are both okay).
- An ATC that's also some kind of art project for me to do.
- A paper doll (preferably a girl/woman or an animal, but it's up to you).
- A functional ATC board game (feel free to invent your own game if you don't want to replicate an existing one).
- Toys in humorous/inappropriate situations (Robot Chicken type stuff).
- Artist's choice--surprise me!

@blupaisan:  Oh noes, blu discovered Norman Rockwell's most secret painting technique!  That's a fun and appropriate way to reinterpret his work.

Cute baby figure too and I like the blue yarn(?) border.  Given the month, RockingBearRanch's added ribbon makes me think of it as a New Year's baby now.  There should be a Mother Time too, not just Father Time, anyway!

@curiousfae:  Neat, geometric rainbow shape and quote.  My linework/writing in never that clean/precise! Tongue

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Re: The Universe Within - 18x24" mixed media on: January 15, 2018 09:09:41 AM
That's a very powerful and striking image and an interesting way to convey the idea that we're spiritual entities experiencing a physical life.  What does the symbol on the flower (lotus?) below the navel symbolize?
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Doll Invasion & Repairs (Warning: Way too many photos--for realz!) on: January 15, 2018 08:55:35 AM
Thanks!

The police did stop and question me once, this past summer, when I was out-and-about early one morning, because there had been a recent string of car stereo burglaries in my town (they later caught the man who was doing it, some 20-something-year-old guy).  The officer wanted to know if I was on my way home from an all-night drunk too--and I don't even drink!  Cry  Gotta learn to master walking in a straight line, so I do . . .
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Re: 3D Perler Madness! on: January 15, 2018 08:42:10 AM
Those are pretty cool--I don't see a lot of 3-dimensional Perler bead art, but they do work pretty well for that if you know what you're doing, and you definitely do!  Tinkerbell and the Mini Cooper are my favorites out of the assortment that you made.  Great job!

Lazy Patraw (who hasn't done any "serious" artwork since Labor Day) done sent in his questionnaire for the January swap. 
10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: On The Go Race Track on: January 11, 2018 09:16:18 AM
That's a pretty cool modular road set-up and carrying case.  Do the road pieces have velcro or anything to attach them to one another, or do you just lay them end-to-end?  Was the wooden box originally one of those art kit cases (the ones that come with an assortment of markers, colored pencils, etc.)?
