Doodle Kitty #2 What is an ATC?

Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) are individual fine art miniatures which are traded between artists. They measure 2.5" x 3.5", the same as commercial trading cards. Artists trade with other artists at live sessions or over the internet. Artists can also join themed swaps with other artist participants and receive a set number of cards in return. Artists generally sign and date the back, and may also include a title and contact information on each of their cards. The Artist Trading Card trend began in Switzerland in 1997 and has been popularized via the internet.
