#ATCitupWithFriends ATC Monthly Trade Events hosted by Pabkins.

THEMES: Choose one of the below

Group 1 – Video Games

Group 2 – Fantasy Terrariums

DUE To Host by:  April 30th, 2018 (due in my hands by this date!)

TO SIGN UP: You must READ THIS BLOG POST!   then fill out the questionnaire form at the bottom of this page (only fill it out once ever) – I know it’s long but PLEASE READ IT, the reason it’s so long is because I want everyone to know how its run and what the standards are. I’m actually really easy going, so don’t let all this FAQ scare you!

April’s THEMEs:


Thats right you get to choose which theme you’d like to participate in this month! This is the first time I’ve had two different themed groups in one month. Please choose either ONE or the OTHER to participate in. Then notify me either by emailing, DMing on instagram or commenting on instagram which you will join. IF YOU WANT TO DO BOTH – then you must send TWO sets of cards and double postage as I will be swapping these out separately. Do not send a mixed set as that would be too difficult for me!

Video Games! Be sure that your cards feature a video game element. Perhaps someone playing a video game? Or characters from your favorite video games? Or the world of your favorite video game? What about a game map? Be creative there are so many things you can do. What is NOT acceptable: DO NOT COPY, TRACE or REDRAW exactly a scene or character from the actual video games. Yes draw your favorite characters if you want but don’t sit there and look at a image from the web or the game and redraw it. This should still be your own original artwork.

Do you not know what a Terrarium is? Click this link to see a google search result for images of terrariums. Please be sure you add some sort of fantasy element. Some examples of ways to do that would be perhaps add a creature, a magical or fantasy element. Really though as long as its a terrarium you should be fine but please try to get creative.


These monthly themes are intended as a CHALLENGE as well as a way to trade fabulous original art and bond our little art community. Please rise to the challenge and treat your fellow artists with respect by putting in your best efforts. If you are unwilling to put forth true effort then please do not apply to join!
