I decided to stop writing journals because my broad aceo-list sends a "mention" notification to everyone in there. Instead, I will only update this current journal- from what I know, that doesn't cause these mentions to appear.
Hi there. Moving places, moving jobs, this seems to be quite a hectic time for me yet again, so excuse my inactivity, please! I don't really know where I currently am with my life nor what I actually want, so doubt is my constant friend. So yeah, art just rarely comes to my mind- few pieces I created lately were all gifted away with a promise of recipients giving me photos/scans in return, but it seems I'm just too easy to be forgotten... so I don't really have anything to show you guys. I still hope to start 2019 with regular aceo group-trades (with some non-group extra trades here and there) as I used to do back during uni. Hopefully, that is not too courageous of a plan! Anyway, how are you guys doing?
_______quick ACEO trade-notes: I do physical trades of cards (=exchange of original paintings, snail-mail), so no digital art for me, sorry. Our postal service is not very reliable. I highly recommend you take a photo/scan of a card before sending it to me- in case card doesn't arrive, I require either new card (if I have no other cards from you) or some kind of proof that a card had been made for me (in quality good enough for me to print it out), or you may end up in my blacklist without it being your fault. Blacklist also happens if I have to wait over half a year after posting my part. Copyrighted character cards will be drawn only with permission of rightholder -your OC cards should be fine but "this favorite character from that show" cards are not. (Not unless you go ask.) Don't hesitate to ask certain style from mine- I choose the one I think would fit best, but if you prefer one over the others, just tell me and I'll do my best to create a card you'd like. Feel free to browse my gallery, there are many unattended cards you may like. Trades in which you ask for an already available card are always opened! ( <--- Except for now: having no postal delivery yet at my current address means I cannot trade, I am sorry.)
As for my request,
it is exactly the same most of time, so I may as well write it down here: Random animal
. Your pet or just favourite species, interesting or funny critter, or, if you draw mostly people, human in animal suit, maybe? Keep the creative juices flowing! For starters, www.arkive.org/random-species
may suggest you some really unique creatures! Yep, I decided to build my own card zoo for real.

UNRESOLVED STUFF/BLACKLIST:date used here is approx. time they received my original cardSimonne8
/SimonneX from me:, for me: since 9.2012, She always says her part is done and that she will send it when she'll have time but that she can't do it at that time. When her first account got deleted, she did not contact me in order to finish our trade. I have never seen scan/photo of the card. lukeebear
, for me: since 10.2012, She said she had made and sent me one card already and it never arrived; says she always forgets to send me second one she offered. She deleted her account a year after receiving my card. Never seen the scan of either of the cards.Esmerra
, for me: since around 2.2013, Upon asking, she answered she has no time at the time, so she received additional few months before blacklist, yet in 1.2014 I was still not even in her "aceo/trade to do list" and new works appeared in her gallery frequently. Deleted account around March that year.Duskit
, for me: since around 6.2013, She asked me for a trade but notes from me were always marked as unread, communication sporadic and full of promises about her part, and her last login seems to be over a year ago. My part for her (her cat character) is done but not sent to her, so it is available for trading with whoever asks (with char still being copyrighted to Duskit, of course).gaerda
, for me: since around 6.2013, Very pleasant response after I asked her for a trade, I've seen her part of the trade digitally, but no card has arrived to me and there was no response to my subsequent notes.phoebixfenikkusu09
, for me: trade organized by now dead oc-tradesncritiques group in 2.2015. She did her part digitally and of wrong size, and upon my explanation what aceos/atcs are she agreed that since she joined the aceo-specific group, it would be fair if she did "proper" card instead, so I shipped her my part. She received it and stopped communicating since. In 8.2016 deleted her account.MiusEmpire
, for me:since 1.2016. Asked for an already-made card of mine, made a card for me properly. It never arrived and there is no reply to my notes. My card, not yet sent, was made available for trading again.
Jennka, Katka, Libor: from me:
, for me: Don't ask real-life friends for a trade, they won't find enough time to make a single card for you in years.
