Handmade Paper & Artist Trading Cards

ACEO / ATC by Shellie Lewis

I’ve been making ACEOs / artist trading cards for sale or trade, but I went and got attached to this one.  It’s drawn from a photograph of a gargoyle on Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.  My friend Will McShane gave me a bunch of handmade paper he crafted himself.  The sheet I have been working with is variable in thickness and has a lot of surface interest and color changes.  I have been drawing on it in pen and ink and using a little watercolor, except the gargoyle above: that one is white Prismacolor pencil over pen and ink.

I have been doing a series on yoga poses.  (They’re hard to draw!)  I may stop at about twelve or so.  I think they look nice with the handmade paper.  Here are a two of my favorites of the group I put on Etsy.
