These are ATCs (Artist Trading Cards).  It's a fun activity I do with my students.  You start out with a 2.5" x 3.5" piece of paper, then you add art to it.  When you have made a good collection, you trade with someone else.  I traded these originals with my 6th graders today.  I'm going to do color studies of some of them, and post later.

Hey, look! It's Chubicorn's relatives!

One of my favorite artists just recently posted some Chubicorn-ish images!  His name is Scott C, and he is really cool.  In fact, according to this image, we think alike!  Now, you would think I would be offended that Chubicorn was copied by someone.  Chubicorn was created and copyrighted by me four years ago.   However, I take it as a compliment (maybe he saw my site!) or a freaky coincidence!  
You can see more of Scott's work (and Chubicorn's relatives) here!
