Artist Trading Cards are 2.5 by 3.5 inch miniature works of art. They are works of art specifically made to be freely traded --- thus the name, Artist Trading Card (ATC).

I need some input here, buddies. I know that the general trend is to communicate quite a bit on the ATC site about the jams. It's nice to read the comments, too. Helps it feel like more of a community. The problem for me is that I just can't do it all. I'd like to, but I just don't have what it takes to get it done. Maybe it would be better if I didn't do the jams but just did swaps with whoever would like to.  I've had to back away from doing much posting on IUOMA; it was swallowing up my…Continue

An ATC Blitz is the bombardment -- by members of the ATC Rebels Group -- of a particular member with works on the subject of a chosen theme. "Blitz" is from the German "Blitzkrieg" or "lightning-war" -- a sudden aerial bombardment. Only in our case, it's the snailmailforce bombing a fellow artist's post box, at their own pace, with tiny works of art.The artist-recipient lists their chosen theme(s) here, then the rest of us respond whenever we can and as often as we wish, so that they will have…Continue
