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:
