What Are ATCs?

Artist Trading Cards–or ATCs–
are miniature works of art created on 2. 5" x 3. 5" card stock, the size of sports trading cards. All techniques are allowed and anybody can produce them.
ATCs are signed, dated, and
titled on the back then traded
away for ATCs made by others. Money never exchanges hands and all trades are one-for-one.
