This an ATC.

The Ears Have It!

I am working on a swap of Hand Drawn ATCs. The theme is "body parts". I decided to try ears. Probably because no one else will be doing them and because their odd shapes they offer a real challenge.

Post Mark ATC

Daniel, an artist from a Yahoo Group in which I participate once said, "I never met a piece of paper I did not like." I have people mailing me drawing paper from all over the world. Much of it ends in the recycle bin. I hope I have come across a new use for it.
It and the "Brick Church" below were also inspired by a handdrawn ATC swap I just signed up for.

Rensselaer Post Mark ATC

This is an ATC (2.5 x 3.5 inches) on an original envelope for an insurance mailing. The building is a red brick church which was on the site of the city of Rensselaer NY. I'm curious if anyone has been to Rensselaer and seen such a church. In Upstate NY it looks like a beautiful area.

IF Visitor

I was looking for religious themes for some ATCs and I was intrigued by the tale of Joseph. He was visited by an angel who told him not to divorce Mary. Various accounts say that Joseph was 80 years old and had sons and daughters from an earlier marriage.

Emergency---Illustration Friday

I have not done an Illustration Friday in some time. This was an interesting topic.
I think of ambulances out on deserted highways where one can see the city lights but help can be far away. It comes from living a long time in the SouthWest.
