I want to collect some silly doodles. Take a crappy pen and draw something, as awesome as possible, in 5 or 10 minutes. The weirder the better. Make it look cool, or freaky, or cute. No embellishments, no layering, no scrapbooking techniques, no glitter/gems, no paint, no collaging, no printed images, no stickers. Just a pen. Nothing fancy.

You can draw directly onto some plain cardstock, or you can do lots of doodles on paper and then cut out your favorite ones and mount them on cardstock. Or, if you have a ton of your old doodles lying around, you can just cut out some of your favorites, crop them down to ATC size, and glue them onto cardstock.

I think this will be fun. I get tired of the decorative, scrapbooking style ATCs with layers of fancy embellishments. I get so many of these and honestly, I'd rather collect doodles on cards!

Zentangling/doodling abstract patterns is allowed, but I'd also like to see... animals, plants, human figures, body parts, faces, monsters, robots, landscapes, etc. Nudity is also encouraged, because I like it, and we are all adults here. Free self expression with a crappy pen... go! If you're feeling it, you may color it in, do some shading, or use different colored pens, but all that I am expecting is a simple line drawing done with 1 black pen, on an ATC.

What the hell, let's do 3 partners, 1 card to each partner. These shouldn't be difficult to do, and it should be fun to receive a variety of styles from different people.

Umm am I the only one without a partner?

@kurtina calm down, partners are now assigned! It took me 1 day to assign partners... I don't think that's unreasonable.

Since the last day to sign up was the 19th, that means the first day I can assign partners is the 20th (or late night of the 19th). I was planning to do it last night, but I didn't get home from work until 11pm and I was too tired. When I assign partners, I have to spend time checking each person's profile to decide if I am going to allow them in my swap. If I don't get partners assigned instantly, it would be nice if people could chill out and be patient, thanks :)
