View Full Version : Anyone interested in a CAT (choose-a-theme)swap?

Hey everyone! I was thinking it might be fun to start up a new CAT swap, anyone think they might want to play?

For those who may not know: CAT (choose-a-theme) swaps are a lot like PAT (pick-a-theme) swaps, with one major difference - each artist chooses what she/he will be drawing for their group. For example, a might pick "mermaids" as my theme, and create 5 mermaid cards, one for each of the people in my group. It's fun because you can pick something you're excited about drawing - something you know you're good at, something you've been wanting to try, etc.

Here's an example of a past CAT swap (http://www.illustratedatcs.com/forum/showthread.php?2760-CAT-Choose-A-Theme-Swap-DUE-Feb-20-2010) - for this one Amerasu made themed groups (people, animals, etc.) - I thought it worked out really well!

Anyone up for something similar?

I would be in for that, as long as the due date was a goodly distance away. ;]

They are really fun. The one Amerasu hosted was great, I've been wanting to do another one! :)

So Renee, are you going to host this CAT?

03-23-2011, 09:31 PM
I think so! Hopefully I'll have time to set it up this week!

Sweet. My eyes are glued to the forum. I want to make sure I get an awesome spot. :)

Rene, what general themes will you have for the groups? It looks like in the past there have been "People" "Animals", etc. If I know all my options I can start brainstorming on what I can make. ;)

I might give this a try

I'm thinking people, animals, and maybe landscapes and an open group where people can choose anything - if anyone has any suggestions let me know! :)

I'm ready! And I mean ready. I already finished 5 seahorse cards for the animal group! :D

A fantasy group? or a sci-fi group?

Okay everyone, the swap is up! If you want to play, grab your spots quick before the groups fill up! :)
