About Me

Hello all.

I have spent many years here trading ATCs and I have taken many breaks. I am usually active for several months before the negativity found in the forums drives me away...

But I keep coming back because I enjoy making and sending off my art in the form of small trading cards.

I cannot draw or paint. Most of my designs are worked on a computer. GIMP is a great (and free) graphics program that I use to create the images I use for my wood and metal work. My "art" is more in the techniques I use to make my cards...

I rate every swap I receive. If you do not get a rating, it is because I did not receive it. I do not rate a 1, as I assume you sent it and the post office lost it, which is not your fault. Rating a 1 on good swapper causes too much stress and everyone else takes care of the flakers anyway.

I do angel every swap I host, as I enjoy sending more than receiving.

I enjoy receiving any and all ATCs. My binder is very diverse...

If I had to choose, I prefer these themes:
Nature
Trees
Flowers
Dragons
Owls
Scorpions/Scorpio
People, Men, Women
Science Fiction
Fantasy

Or whatever you do best.

Comment: Thank you for the amazing card! My jaw dropped when I opened the envelope -- it's so cool! (I decided to display it. The brass works well with my existing decor, so I'm very excited.)

Comment: JERRY!!! I saw that you were my partner when I was rating my other partner and I got SO excited, but when I saw the actual ATC it surpassed all expectations. It is SO BEAUTIFUL! I love how you put the different shades of wood together and the color accent (what material is that?). It's exquisite!! Once I find a suitable frame, this lovely artwork is going on the wall. Thank you so much for sharing your work with me. I am so blessed and honored to own it! THANKS! :):):)
Response: It is epoxy resin. I have seen so many cool projects with it, I had to pick some up and try it. It is way more work than I expected, but still a fun material. I am very happy you like my card.

You have the coolest Etsy shop, I love it and your aesthetic sensibilities. You rock Lovecraft in an awesome way.

Hi, Jerry:

Have received your copper pin/ATC - very different from any ATC I've ever received before. And, to be able to detach the pin and wear it! Impressive. Thanks very much. This is for the Surrealism Art Swap.

Thank you so much for angeling the Peace Sign ATC swap!!! I love it!! I am framing it and putting it on my dresser.

I love your etching on your etsy site!!

I LOVE the circus ATCs so much! Please let me know if you are interested in doing any more trades (circus or not related!). I feel like we have an affinity due to mutual love of circus! (i used to perform in one) I would be interested to hear your story, are you actually related to ringling from the circus or is it just a fun coincidence?
