ATC Themes

The FiberAntics ATC swap is currently on hiatus. Please enjoy the creative work of the artists from past swaps. Photos of artwork is for inspiration only. The copyright for the art remains with the artist.

What is an Artist Trading Card (ATC)?
Artist Trading Cards, or ATCs for short, are miniature works of art the size of baseball trading cards (2.5" x 3.5"). They can be created with any wet or dry medium or technique. As the name implies, and adhering to M. Vanci Stirnemann's original intent, they are traded and not sold. My monthly ATC swaps have a theme.
