Soooooo October is creeping up on us pretty quickly! I know this post is coming a little early, but we gotta keep on top of things and make sure we are prepared 😀
Drawlloween!! Oh yeah! This one is my favorite. I look forward to this every year. One artwork per day for the entirety of the month. I usually draw sketch cards for this event since they are small and quick.

ATCsForAll has a few activities planned out. This site is for any and all art card traders. From the novice to the advanced: everyone is welcome!

iATCs also has some really cool activities for the month! If you like drawing or painting artist trading cards, this is the place to trade. There is an art-athon, active swaps, one-to-one trades, as well as forum participation in the Drawlloween mentioned above. Hope to see some familiar faces 😉
Note: iATCs is a juried site. This means that your will need to apply by showing some artwork. Usually, only seasoned traders will gain access to this site. All applications are accepted on a case-by-case basis.
