Welcome to Trade Secrets, an art exchange group that hosts 3 events every year where artists draw gifts for eachother: Secret Santa, Secret Valentine and Summer Exchange.
We focus on full colored illustrations with background that lean towards semi-realism and we accept both digital and traditional media.
If your invitation expired send me a note!

We are looking for an extra admin. You need to be available in November, January or June. Note us if you are interested!
