Welcome to my new thing… Art Card Friday! Basically what this means is that every week I’m going to post an ACEO I’ve made. Why? Because I can and you all need more art in your lives. It’s also a good exercise for me as it means I have to get off my butt and do some more ACEOs. Now I make no guarantee that they will be good or that I will even be coherent in writing descriptions but it will hopefully be fun!
So seeing as this is a little out of the blue I thought for this first one I’d clue you all in on what an ACEO is…
“What does ACEO stand for?
ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals
Description of an ACEO:
Its a form of art on a 2.5″ x 3.5″ medium. The medium can be anything ranging from a piece of paper, card stock, felt, card board, wood, etc. The important part is the size. The size is what makes an ACEO. It’s the standard for all ACEO cards.
What types of Art can be used?
All types. Paintings, Ink/Pencil drawings, Collage, Digital Art, Photography, etc. etc. As long as it fits the size!
What are ACEO’s for?
ACEO cards are mainly meant for selling and collecting. In some cases and ACEO card can also be an ATC card (Art Trading Card), where you trade a card for a card.”

I personally sell my ACEO’s through my etsy store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5396959 and if you click the image at the top of the post you can go directly to it’s listing.
See you next week!
