Figure Drawing Class by Bobbie-the-Jean
Interest in anthropomorphism has become quite a movement. Specifically, animals with human characteristics. Anthro has its own category on DeviantART and a host of groups dedicated to it, including #AnthroCommunity, which boasts over 4,000 members.

Anthropomorphism is defined as anything displaying human characteristics that is not human. Like animals, plants, food, inanimate objects, weather, etc, etc. The first known example is a 32,000 year old German sculpture of a figure with a lion’s head. Anthro embodies many popular geek concepts, such as Furry, kawaii, and cartoon. I’ve found many different amazing examples and compiled them for your viewing pleasure.

I love to collect art, but it’s not always practical to buy large prints or spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on original pieces. Fortunately, that’s where art cards come in. Artist Trading Cards or ATCs, started around 1996 when artists began trading original works with each other, each the size of a standard baseball card (2.5″x3.5″). They can come in any medium, from the standard painting or drawing, to yarn, metal, clay, or object collage.

ATCs spawned ACEOs (Art Card Editions and Originals), which are sold to the public instead of traded, and include prints of originals works and photos, also in the required trading card size. I have amassed quite a number of ACEOs over the years, as well as sold quite a few, and I’ve found collecting them to be highly addictive. They look beautiful framed, inserted in cards as gifts, or collected in a scrapbook. I’ve featured some beautiful art cards here from Etsy and DeviantART artists, as well as from some of my favorite Ebay artists.
