|ACEOs or ATCs are small pictures, 2.5 by 3.5 inches (6.4 x 8.9 cm), the size of an usual card. They can be drawn or painted by different mediums (traditional) and they are also extremely collectable - thatīs what I actually enjoy!|
Hello everyone! Time flies and it's few months since last update. I was quite busy with preparations of our new dragon calendar. I made completely new design and now it's more comfortable for English-speaking people as well. We still have some left, if you're interested!
This summer we were on vacation in Tunisia, and after ten years I saw the sea again! We were at the beautifully clean beach with clear blue sea, but the most epic part of this vacation was our two-day trip to Sahara. It was a truly memorable experience.
We also made some progress in our flat, this time mostly in the kitchen and living room. I got an interesting job offer so I quit at my current job. Now I have few days off and will start working in new place this Monday. New work, new people, new habits ... that's always very stressful for me.
Once again there is time to get some nice gifts and prepare for Christmas! Obviously I was a good girl this year, cause I already got my biggest gift - Cintiq 13HD! I was thinking about getting Cintiq for years and now my wish came true, thanks to my Dear! I always had troubles using classic tablet, drawing on a tablet and simultaneously watching monitor. If you have similar problems, this thing is perfect solution for you : )
Me and my husband will be spending our first Christmas together this year. So far (8 years!) we spent them separately, each with his family. and Kraken travelled with my husband to his parent's. But now we have two cats, which cannot move so easily, and a new home, so I guess it's the right time for a change! So far it looks that this year I will have more time for cooking and baking some sweets, decorating our home and walks though Christmas Prague. Hopefuly this time there will be also some snow, it's kinda sad without it.
Well, I am practising with digital art right now, so you can expect some artworks! It almost seems like the rule that every autumn / winter I am more in artistic mood then usual. But it could be easily replaced with urge to do graphic design, so let's make some pictures until it's time! : D

Getting original ACEO from Ahkahna, Duskit
ACEOs or ATCs are small pictures, 2.5 by 3.5 inches (6.4 x 8.9 cm), the size of an usual card. They can be drawn or painted by various traditional mediums and they are also extremely collectable! I collect these little originals with some breaks since March 2008 and so far my album contains about 98 cards. Most of them, 91, illustrate my one and only original character Dragarta. Lately I started collecting cards with pictures of our cats Kraken & Corwin and so far I have 7 of them. It's very inspiring to see the same theme created in different styles by so many talented artists from all around the world. Thank you all who did a card for me!
