Artist Trading Cards

The images below are artist trading cards. They are the size of baseball cards. Click here for a diagram of how to get 10 cards from one 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock.

I hand-carved all of the stamps on the cards below.

I call this ACT "Lewis Carroll's Dream." AMGD stands for Ad Majorem Gloriam Dei, Latin for "To the greater glory of God." I use this stamp on all of my artwork.

This is from a series of stamps I carved of Salvador Dali's moustache. The background is a gradient using the Aurora Brilliance pad.

You will notice the true mark of an artist on the ATC -- my fingerprint!

This is one of several stamps I carved based on old Chinese papercuts. The background is the polished stone technique.
