4×6 Exchange

There hasn’t be enough time to start on my silhouette project that is bouncing around in my head, but I realized I had a post I never finalized. Sorry this is old news, but it doesn’t mean I can’t share the work I created. 🙂

The same people who organized The Sketchbook Project had another project last year called the 4×6 Exchange. Their idea was to have creatives sign up for an art swap on a global scale. The artists who wanted to join in the fun had to mail Art House HQ a 4″x6″ piece of artwork, and it would be exchanged with another artist’s submission. I have done something similar to this but with a bunch of Twitter artists (@davidpringle taking the lead). So, I knew right away I wanted to be a part of the project.

Of course, I was in the doodle mood and broke out the Sharpies. Most of the time when I draw these doodles, I end up deciding whether I really want to add the acrylic or leave it alone. To preserve what it looked like before color, I scan it and that way I always have a before and after image to keep.

The BEFORE is only Sharpie ink. The AFTER is acrylic on top of the Sharpie.

  1. Lovely work, Jaime! Wish I’d spotted the project in time to get involved – I do love a good art swap.

  2. @stina_jones Thank you, Stina! The project went up rather quickly and 1000 people seemed to be signed up in a day. It went fast! We will have to keep our eyes open for other art swaps. 🙂

  3. Hi there, I would love to do an art swap with you, I have never done one and I am finding it very difficult to find a way to do it… So I thought, hey.. why not just ask someone? So if you’d be up for it, my email address is jadehutchinson1@gmail.com
    Thanks! 🙂

  4. Hello, Jade! I apologize for my late reply! I was having some neck problems and wasn’t able to sit at a computer for very long. Now I am more mobile. Lol! I will send you an email.
