4th Annual LCS Art Exchange

Posted by on Nov 2, 2014 in LCS News | No Comments

Each year around this time we do a Secret-Santa-style art swap among members of our group. We are ready to get it started once again this year! Here’s how it works:


  1. Open to Louisville Cartoonist Society members and active participants. Have you ever been to a meeting, worked our booth at a show or attended a drink-n-draw? If “yes”, you are in!
  2. Everyone submits their name and a character request via this online sign-up form by November 15.
  3. We randomly assign each person to someone else
  4. Everyone must create a full blown commission – at least one full body character with minimal background – for that person based on their character request. Commissions can be pencil, marker, ink or paint and should be 9×12 or larger on nice bristol board or similar. Everyone wants great artwork so really put some time into it! The pieces seem to be getting better each year.
  5. On Wednesday, December 17 we will have a holiday party (time and location to be determined) and exchange the art and reveal everything. You must be present in order to participate!
  6. For the art, feel free to include supporting characters or more detailed backgrounds, etc. Would be nice to include a bag, sleeve or frame, but certainly not required.
