Portraits ATCs by hogret Portraits ATCs by hogret
The League of ExtraOrdinary Gentlemen ~ Artists Trading Cards

I created the six gentlemen originally in Photoshop from a vintage photograph (for the shoulders and bow tie) and different animal heads, manipulated to fit, and given a sepia retro treatment.

Then I printed the portraits out on a transparency sheet and collaged them onto cards with masking tape and collaged text backgrounds, acrylic glazes, and gold paint.

Duck, pig and upper left sheep reserved.
Dog, bunny and sheep with earrings available.

Great job, great idea. It made me think immediately to Orwell, to fables of Phaedrus, to the "Bestiari" medioevali.
And I love your cat, I've had an equal. Hello!

Is the rabbit still available? I am still a newbie at making ATCs but I'd love to trade you? Do you have a favorite subject I could offer?
