Timeline and General info:

MAIL TO Host by: January 15, 2023 (if this date has passed and I haven’t yet swapped sometimes extensions happen, you’re always welcome to message me and ask if there is still time to participate)

Requirements: As always our normal standards apply of original mailing THREE cards (four if sending a host gift card) They must be 2.5 x 3.5 inch original hand drawn/colored/painted cards in your best efforts. I swap cards around based on composition, detail, and final execution. Empty backgrounds or people/objects with solid color for background, or head only cards are discouraged, please try for more. This community is made fabulous by everyone trying their best and being supportive and encouraging of each other’s growth.

December’s THEME:


Your card must feature a foodimal! But what is a foodimal? It is an animal that is a food character. This is inspired by the film “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” and the November #CDC Character Design Challenge theme. There were so many amazing foodimals. So your foodimal shouldn’t just be a “food with a face” that would not be a foodimal! It should actually have some sort of animal or creature mashup element to it. You do not have to use a real animal but it should definitely look strongly of animal that is a food.

If there are any questions about ANY group challenge themes don’t hesitate to ask me or share in our discord server for feedback from other members as well!

If you’re needing inspiration and have facebook you can surf the photo album of the CDC facebook group here. 


See Pabkins create some art & open ATCitUp envelopes each week on Mondays @ 11:00 AM PST on my TWITCH CHANNEL!


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!
