A Tanuki is a Japanese racoon dog. Statues of Tanuki can be found in temples and shrines in Japan.The statues often wear big, cone-shaped hats and carry bottles of sake. They also have exaggeratedly huge testicles, usually hanging down to the floor.

Stories often report the mythological Tanuki as being harmless and productives members of society. Some shrines are based on stories of past priests who were actually Tanuki in disguise. Actually, Tanukis can shapeshift.

Other Tanukis are simply tricksters that will fool people to get food, drink or money.

So for this swap you have to make one ATC for one partner. The theme is the Tanuki. There is lovely artwork on them on the internet that you can use, or you can make your own artwork on them. It's up to you.

Any technique is welcome. But please, put some effort into it. I don't consider a piece of cardboard with a sticker to be an ATC. Make something you are proud of, something you would love to recieve yourself.

Now for the boring part... I will only accept good swappers. No 1 ratings (unless it is a very special case you can explain to me, then you must message me). No recent 3 ratings. More than 10 fulfilled swaps (e-mail swaps will not count). I will ban if necessary to make sure this is a safe swap.

If you have any questions or doubts, feel free to message me!

I may not be able to do this one, if I can't I will see about contacting you for a private swap like we did for the Kitsune, Mari, but I have to host swaps in other groups that I promised I would...great series though enjoyed the first two!
