Artist Trading Cards

This is a wonderful fun free way to collect miniature pieces of art and meet new artists.

HOW TO MAKE ARTIST TRADING CARDS

1. All cards must be 3.5 x 2.5 inches.

2. In any medium on any sub-straight...think sports trading cards size.

3. On the back include your signature, date, title or series, and city/country.

4. Trade with other artists one-for-one.

Oh those are fantastic. I can't wait to share them with my husband:) He loves stories from Fresno old days...

Here's another shot of my dad, Jim. I think these old b&w photos would be good to hand tint and have as Artist Trading Cards. Since they were taken almost 60 years ago, the copyright wouldn't be a problem especially if I added to the photo with hand coloring. The color ones of my cousin on the nitro drag bike are from more recent photographers, so I wouldn't be able to use them. I like the old old carnival idea anyway, and I have alot of old photos that my dad left me. He passed away about 10 years ago, shortly after seeing his first great-grandchild. He died from lung cancer due to smoking. Clyde is only about 65 now and still around Fresno and elsewhere working on drag bikes and choppers. My mom sold the old orange shop after my dad died, but I enjoy talking about those days!

this is my cousin Clyde in the 70's. He and my dad were partners at Rawlings Motor Maniacs.

It's my childhood charm bracelet, I'm sure I remember where every single one of those came from. I bought the #1 as a pair of earrings and my sister and I both put them on our charm bracelets...the year I graduated from high school. I used to have a lot of friends who lived in that neighborhood back in the day, and I know you know, your dad is a legend. Look forward to meeting you in person!

Wow, that's amazing that you remember where you bought your charm, of course there weren't that many M.C. shops back then, and that shop was one of a kind! I think I'll post some photos of the old orange building on my page-thanks for sharing.

And Audrey, I have a charm on my childhood charm bracelet I bought at your dad's shop in 1975;) Harley #1
