Art History 101- Due May 15th

Peter Max

Introduction:This will be a monthly swap for the year. Each month a different artist will be the theme. It will cross through time and periods of history. You will be able to look at some great art to interpret or learn a new technique. Become inspired!!!

This will be a 3/3 or 6/6 swap

Unlimited players

Cards will be in any medium, except for collage. You may interpret the artist by making your own art by using their style. Or you can copy their artwork or subject using your style. Of course you can copy their subject or artwork. Just create, it is up to you.

Each month cards must be postmarked by the 15th of each month. Returns will be mailed by the 30th of each month.

Please send a SASE or correct postage for U.S. players. International players will have postage picked up by me. PM me with your address so I can send your returns.

LATE CARDS WILL BE RETURNED, because of the quick returns.

Please make sure you write the artist on the back of your cards along with your user name, for itrader feedback.

Hey Livia - just a suggestion, but you might want to add the name of the artist to your Swap title to help keep all them organized. Plus it might draw in more artist!

peter max was just plain fun... like doodling & coloring it in... the ones I did are actually real paintings of his... but it would be fun to just do some in his style & create something new... I should have tried that too.

03-21-2008, 12:08 AM
No way!! I thought I had seen all of his paintings!! Just shows ta go ya, the man cranked out some art!!

04-09-2008, 06:58 PM
Annie, don't feel bad, I will miss your cards.

04-09-2008, 11:03 PM
Annie, DANG!

04-14-2008, 02:32 AM
Hey all, I just got a pm from Meran and she sez I should play in more swaps. So, I'm going to follow her sage advice and ask to please join this swap! What a great way to learn new techniques and refresh my Art History! Besides, I actually REMEMBER Peter Max from WAaaayyyyy back when! (showing my age) lol



04-14-2008, 04:54 AM
Good girl!

04-15-2008, 10:08 PM
Liz thanks for joining, looking forward to your cards. I received cards (6) from Katie, they are awesome. I also received cards from Cat. This is going to be a great swap. ALL the cards are great!!

04-15-2008, 10:10 PM
Meran, you will be greatly missed by me. I will leave an honorary #2 spot for you in June, just in case.

04-17-2008, 12:43 PM
Katie made 6 cards so if anyone else feels up to making more than three it would be great. Just a reminder it need some extra postage. I also hear the postal rates are going up again in May.

04-17-2008, 09:14 PM
Uh! That sucks! (I mean about the postage - not Katie's cards)

04-20-2008, 08:27 PM
I'm done. I did his portrait style cards.

Cards are going in the mail in the morning.

Received Maria Magenta's beautiful cards today. They are far better in person.

05-09-2008, 07:16 PM
I didn't know Peter Max before, and I got fascinated by four seasons, it made only 3 ATCS:


My cards will be in the mail tomorrow,


05-09-2008, 07:58 PM
WOW! It looks fantastic put together! You really nailed is new style - I can't imagine that is too easy to do. I'd be a shame to break them up.

Thanks! It is still difficult for me to just get inspired from an artist and make something in his style (even just Zetti), but I found out you learn a lot in the process of copying, especially the number of colours to use! I initially planned to paint in acrylics, but finally used coloured pencils which is always more time consuming.

Anne your cards are great. I also love to do "murals" with cards. They are great fun when you cut them up.

05-13-2008, 02:15 AM
Received Debbie's cards today. This is going to be an awesome swap. Everyone will have some really great returns.

05-15-2008, 10:39 PM
Anne's beautiful Peter Max cards came today. Very lovely pencil work. Waiting for one more and I will swap out.

05-20-2008, 08:16 PM
All U.S. swapped cards were mailed today. International will go tomorrow, need to make sure the postage is correct (I hate price changes). Hope everyone will like their cards. They were all just the best.

Also, I included an "Artist Card", if I have forgotten to send you one let me know.

05-21-2008, 06:05 PM
International players cards were mailed today. Safe returns to all!! Super swap.

05-21-2008, 06:08 PM
OOOh, I can't wait Livia! I'm so excited - Max is one of my faves!
