Doodle Swap #17 Roundup

Another Doodle Swap has come and gone. For those that might not know about this, it’s a artist trading card swap. Once the signups are closed for the current session, addresses are sent out to the participants, you create something on a 3.5″x2.5″ cards (usually around ten or less) and send them out to folks. A few days later, you start receiving little pieces of art from everyone you sent a card to. It’s fun. You don’t need to have any artistic skills to participate, just the ability to fill a card with something interesting. Sometimes there’s a theme, sometimes not. And that’s about it. I highly recommend. So far this is the eleventh time I’ve participated.

This round, there was no theme. However, I like making up a theme anyway. I call this group Kitten Villains. I may have to revisit these cats at some point.
