    Default Deco Buddy List - 1:1 Deco Trades

    Deco Buddy List!

    If you are open to receiving Decos from fellow iATC’s members, add you name to this list.


    Basically what I am going to do is Link to your personal post in this main post here; that way you can keep your own info updated, but we all have quick and easy access to your posting! (Instead of searching through a thread filled with listings and chatter!)

    Important:
    • When adding your name, be sure to note whether you are willing receive artful decos (artful decos do not make use of stickers!) made by non-members of iATCs.

    • If you have a preference for what kind of decos to work on, list them! Likewise, if there is something you do not want to work on, list it too!

    • If you have any Decos available to work in, list them here also (it’s theme, size, number of openings, single or double spread, and media preference.) That way people can PM you and mention their interest in working in it!

    • When you feel you have enough Decos to work on, PM me if you want , and I can put ‘On Hold’ by your name in the main post so others will not send to you, in addition to your stating that in your personal post.

    All About Decos (most of this written by V)

    Decos are mail art booklets that you trade with random people. A bit like chunky books/junk books/whatever they are called these days, but these travel in mail from one signer to other. Decos can be of any size and shape that fits an envelope. They have a decorated cover, sometimes a set theme, and around 4-10 blank pages for the signers. Each signer decorates one page and then passes the booklet forward to someone they know. Usually people swap with 2-10 people regularly so the stuff keeps moving. When a deco is full, it is returned to its maker or owner, whose name and contact details are usually stated on the cover.

    Decos can be passed on like round robins too (with a set list of participants), but I personally prefer the old way of just randomly passing them on to someone nice, so that when the booklet gets home it's a great surprise to see where it's been travelling! Decos usually travel for a year or two, but sometimes you might get them back over six years later. I think it's exciting and adds to the fun.. while other people often think it's so "unrewarding" because they don't get the "results" immediately. I still randomly get back decos that I have made in, say, 2006 or 2004. I love it!

    Availability: Happy to do 1:1 trades without a schedule. I don't want to have to work on something and send it back immediately so please be casual if you want to do 1:1s with me! Feel free to send me your own deco or decos from other people in batches of 2-3 at any time. You can send my decos out to others if you like. If it says iATCs near my address, then I'd like to keep any recipients/trades restricted to iATCs members.

    Themes: Day of the Dead, Gothic, Sandman: The Endless, Stupid and/or Lazy Cats, weird and unusual art, zombies, Halloween themed, skulls, figurative art & nudes, black & white portraits, trees, creepy or dark trees, anatomical hearts, esthetic blood, Sin City, comics, nature goddesses, Voodoo dolls or Voodoo Kings, mad hatters (not Disney), found or weird poetry, funny and bizarre, anything to do with books and reading, painting movements, specific artists, science, gaming, men, eras.

    Not interested in: Religious themes, cutesy fairies and kid stuff, landscape art, animals (other than cats and birds). I'd rather not work in decos with these themes as I'm not religious and can't draw animals and landscapes!

    Deco themes I am interested in:
    You can find a small list of my general interests in my profile. I'm also interested in unusual and challenging themes, and unthemed decos as well.

    Open to receive decos?
    Yes! I'd love to receive decos that I can pass on to my personal deco swappers, the decos can be established or made by you. If you have my address, feel free to send me something anytime. I can also do 1:1 trades and such if someone's into that, I can usually send both established decos and decos made by me, your choice.

    Not interested in
    Overly cutesy, girly, cartoony themes perhaps (not including graphic novel & comic book stuff).
    Round robins / organised decos I can't send to people in groups or people that I swap with: I only like round robins if there is an address written on each page so that all I have to do is open the deco, see the next person's address in there and send the deco to them after I have made my page. I don't have time or patience to try and hunt people down in order to know where the deco is going... I can every now and then take one "iATCs only" deco too, but I wouldn't want to get stuck with something I can't get forward.


    Trades currently in progress & decos that I have..

    - I'm gonna be the last signer in Shepouit's Hair deco
    - interested in signing goodmorningstarshine's David Bowie deco

    Decos of my own that were originally offered in this thread:
    - Psychedelia destroys minds and reaps souls
    - Song Lyrics
    - Epic Coats
    - A Few Facts
    - Songs of David Bowie

    My decos can be sent to anyone, so after signing you can offer them in this thread or send them to your pals or wherever you like.

    Sorry to sound so clueless, but I have no idea what 'decos' are. Could someone enlighten me please?

    Not to sound like the odd ball... but I am new to this genre of art. What is a deco?
    Just when you think you have reached perfection, all you have to do is look out your window at the miraculous works of God and know its time to go back to the drawing board.

    Availability: Happy to do 1:1 trades with a casual return date. I'm ridiculously busy these days! Feel free to send me your own deco or decos from other people in batches of 2-3 at any time. You can send my decos out into the world without a blankie, but, if it says IATCs, please send it among us.

    Themes: I'm happy to do anything weird, scary, gory, or otherwise to the left of normal. Halloween stuff is awesome, comic-based is awesome, anything involving text is awesome. Funny stuff rules. The weirder the better, but I'm pretty much open to anything that isn't super pretty.

    Not interested in: Anything super religious or political or otherwise preachy. Super cutesy is bad. I suck at realism. Anything Hello Kitty will get immediately stolen and probably eaten by my 5 year old.

    Availability: Feel free to send me your own deco or decos from other people one at a time or in batches. You can send my decos out to others if you like. I would love to work in books any time so you don't even have to pm me. Just send away. If you need my address just ask!

    Themes: I think I am happy to work in any book. Doing things outside my tastes stretches me. As for what I like..Day of the Dead, Gothic, Witches, white witches, green witches, faeires the more dark mischievous sort, Graying Women, Cats, Winged Cats, Surreal, Mermaids (not too cute) weird and unusual art, zombies, Halloween themed but not too cute, skulls, dark trees full of character, anatomical hearts, nature goddesses.

    Not interested in: overly seriously religious themes, too cutesy, bloody, gorey.

    Hey me too!

    I will participate on any theme. I often make kind of free-association interpretation of the themes. Check my mixed media gallery for what sort of things I do or PM me beforehand.

    I'm happy to receive decos any time, randomly, with ATC trades etc. I swap semi-regularly with about 8 people so if you have some booklets that you want to release into free circulation, just pass them this way. We can also arrange a 1:1 trade.

    You can pass my books anywhere you want to, no need to check it from me or keep it iATCs only.

    (Note that my books have a different return address than my mailing address - I move a lot so I prefer to write my family house's addy, it should be a bit more permanent... )
