A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ....
NO, wait, that was something else. HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF ACEOs?
A long time ago, way back in 2007 or so, when I first started selling my wares 'online' I sold at eBay. I don't know how it happened or who saw me there, but in the eBay community were chat groups and someone from the A & AE group found me and invited me to join. (I believe it was a girl from my state, Darla, who I am grateful for.) So I did! I was invited to join an art group led by one of the COFOUNDERS of ACEO art cards, Jillian Crider. She is amazing, her artwork and accomplishments, well, more about her later!
I had never been in a group/chat thing before, it was so exciting! Meeting and text/chatting with people/artists from all over! I really loved the whole idea! There were many different subjects we talked about, had access to so much valuable information. Jillian did a superb job of keeping everything so well organized, informative, interesting and new!
So, I learned about ACEOs, the sizes are always 2.5" x 3.5" and ONLY that size, anything else and it's not an ACEO! I learned about Art Trading Cards, make and ACEO and TRADE it, no sell it, its an ATC! I learned about small format art, SFA
We had 'dares' or art challenges every week, that was great fun! That is where it began for me. My first dare was this first ACEO that I created! The theme for this challenge was 'FUZZY SLIPPERS' and that is what I was wearing when I created this ACEO.
I learned from Jillian that it is preferred and more professional, to sign our art in a certain way, not only your signature or logo on front of the artwork, but signing the back too.
