I share a lot of darker art and writing on this blog, so thought today I would share some bright, happy art! I like the way this ACEO art trading card came out, featuring a pegasus and a swirly sun. I also added a bit of pastel splatters to dress it up a bit more. Stuff like this is just pure fun to make and share 🙂 Currently up for sale on my Ebay!
Hi everyone! This is just a short post to share a recent video I made showing off some of my newest ACEO art trading card artworks (both those I make and sell and those I have collected from other artists!) I love the world of miniature art and hope others get into the hobby too! It is an affordable, space-saving way to collect and display original art! Lately I’ve really been into mixed media collage artwork, which I’m sure you can tell from the video:
Lately I have really gotten into the practice of collecting, creating and selling ACEO artwork (art card editions and originals). In case you don’t know what an ACEO is, it is a little trading card with original artwork or prints of original artwork on it. It is right around the same size as your typical baseball card (2.5 by 3.5 inches). Many artists make and sell these tiny masterpieces now. The thing I like best about ACEO’s is that they are small, so they don’t take up much space and they are fairly inexpensive, so it is an easy and cost effective way to collect original artworks. Even better, many of these cards have become highly collectible, so although you may only spend a few bucks on a card today, it could be worth a lot in the future! Buying these little artworks is also a great way to support independent artists. They do sell little frames and easels for artworks of this size, so if you want to display your artwork or give it as a gift, that is no problem.
Below are a couple of ACEO artworks I have done recently that are now for sale on ebay, keep in mind that these are only the size of an average trading card. Doing a lot of detail on something that small takes a steady hand and patience, but it is a lot of fun too! If you would like to see more of my art for sale (including other ACEO’s) please visit my ebay page!
