An image-text pairing from my Excerpts series is included in CARDED! again this year. This is always a really fun event, featuring the work of 50 artists in trading card form sold in $5 random packs. For one night only mingle and enjoy refreshments while trading cards. Each card is also displayed framed on the gallery walls.
Copies of my card from CARDED! 2012 recently arrived in the mail. They feature a downscaled image from this Excerpts entry on the front, and an abridged version of its text on the back. I have some extras. If you’d like one, contact me and I’ll mail you a card.
Photos from the show are now online. I didn’t anticipate being able to attend the event, but I managed to make it down for the last hour or so. It was a really fun evening with a great turnout, and there was some excellent art and illustration for trade and on display.
