Actually I drew these ages ago, around 2008, but I've only started posting in crafster in the last week or so. This is my first and last try in ATCs. Maybe I should pick it up again now that I'm posting. Joining a swap could be fun!
These were drawn using markers, coloured pencils, a 0.4 black pen and some white acrylic. I cut the paper from tea boxes and used the back. Next time I'll probably glue white paper over the tea boxes, they have an odd colour and texture. Some of them turned out a bit funky in colour from the scan - I wasn't sure how to fix that.

Let me know what you think!

This really shouldn't be your last ATCs! They look wonderful! I bet there are tons of people who would love to have one of those. I know that I do  Grin

I think your style is really interesting, I would love to see more.. how big are they? They are totally cool though, I have already pinned one of them.

Wow, so many comments! Thanks, everyone, I'm so glad you liked them! I enjoy drawing in miniature, it's just that usually I do it in a sketch book... maybe I should start moving them to ATCs. I'd love to join the next swap - anyone know when it's due?

Mezcraft - these are the usual size of ATCs. I'm curious - which one did you pin?

Gozer - the girl at the train is actually the only one with a real story - it's one of my best friends, I took a picture of her before she boarded the train. I'm not sure but I think she was flying abroad with her parents for a month and they were taking the train to the airport.

These are jaw dropping amazing. I wish I had some ATCs to trade because I would cherish one from you. I hit "this rocks!"

Lovely! I like your loose style a lot. I also really like your subject matter choices. You'd better make more so that we can trade in the future!
