New Fun, Cute Sticker Collages

Here are a few fun, cute ACEO (2.5″ x 3.5″) sticker collages I made a while ago. My personal favorite is probably the polar bears one, but I think they are all cute in their own way:

New Artworks for an Autistic Music-Themed Art Contest!

I made these 3 new mixed media ACEO collages for a new autistic music-themed art contest being sponsored by Mainly Mozart and The Art of Autism, who I have worked with many times in the past for various contests, promotions, and art projects. This particular art contest is called “Finding Your Inner MozArt”. Winners get a cash prize, as well as having their works displayed and put up for sale at Mainly Mozart’s month-long festival in San Diego, California. I hope I win, or at least place!

My new passion for ACEO artwork

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!
