It Starts With A Pencil – Mail Art ATCs

It Starts With A Pencil ATC by Kathy and Tiana

It Starts With A Pencil ATC by Kathy and Tiana

Last month I was given the chance to complete an ATC “Jam”. Misti Ko’s latest mailart project has her sending out a series of ATC “jams” – artist trading cards that she has started and then asks other artists to complete and send them back to her. “Jam” cards are something like the visual equivalent to a musical jam.
All the cards she sends out for this project will start in roughly the same way, with a pencil. Where they go from there is out of her control.

Kathy turned the pencil print into a hedgehog drawing. I contemplated a few ideas and then settled on making it a giant hedgehog along Vancouver’s English Bay. I drew from a photo of a peace march I was on in the 80s.

Get in touch with Misti if you would like to play.  ko (dot) misti (at) gmail (dot) com  And have a look at her website for more examples:

Click on the link to watch a short video from Telus TV about Artist Trading Cards at the Richmond Art Gallery. I didn’t get interviewed but you can see me in the background and there are several shots of my hands looking through the cards.
The final trading session at the end of the show was very energetic and I got a wide variety of international and local cards.

Tiana Kaczor invites you to the 4th annual Artist Trading Cards Exhibition at the Richmond Art Gallery.  ATC’s are miniature works of art created on a 2 ½” x 3 ½” (64 x 89 mm) surface. (Like hockey cards) This show has original artworks or small editions self-produced by artists from all over the world.  There were no restrictions on art materials, meaning the possibilities for creativity are endless, from collage to manga to fabric art. Tiana has 9 cards of animal head patterns done in watercolour and pen.
