Wednesday we traded ATC (artist trading cards) for the Hallmark trade, the theme was "summer." After thinking of several concepts, I finally landed on a county fair theme, specifically focusing on bucket calves. I had bucket calves when I was younger and I am missing them this year more than ever. I named each one of the calves on my cards after my own calves. I had really original names: Daisy, Susie, Betsy, Clover 1, Clover 2, Red, and Met Life (our insurance calf).
I used a combination of computer illustration and hand-drawing for these cards, some being more abstract than others.
