ACEOs are a growing art movement across the globe. If you want proof you can go to ebay.com and search "ACEO" and scroll through the thousands of art cards being sold and collected around the world.
When ACEOs are not sold, but traded they are called Artist Trading Cards (ATCs). There are many websites where trading can take place.
these are just a few
As you can see, ATCs and ACEOs are highly collectible.
An artist that I would recommend collecting work from is Daniel Flores from Los Angeles.
My encouragement to everyone is to try creating a few art cards yourself rather than just collecting them from artists. They are a lot of fun to create and collect, and you will be advancing an art movement.

As of today there are seven new ACEOs (Art Cards Editions & Originals) posted for auction on my Ebay Shop. The images above are two of the cards that have been posted. Remember that each purchase supports my efforts to encourage and train young artists in the Los Angeles area. If you have bid on my work in the past, I thank you very much. Please keep an eye on both my Ebay store and my Etsy shop with the links at the top of this page.
Note: These auctions are only up for auction for 10 days. The cards are all one of a kind. If they are not bid on they will most likely never be available again in any way shape or form. I say "most likely" because a few of them could find their way to my Etsy shop or to an ATC trading post here in Los Angeles.
Oh yeah! That's why movies are made.
The sentence above sums up my reaction to this film. I haven't had this much fun watching a movie since Monster Squad, The Evil Dead or E.T. The character development was pretty fast, but couple that with each actor's performance and you have some really solid character driven story telling. The cinematography was done well. I really enjoyed the throw back 70's set designs and wardrobes a lot. This is definitely a film to be experienced on the big screen- don't wait to buy or rent it. Remember, there is a nice pay-off during the ending credits so don't leave right after the movie is done.

Now that I have ten ACEOs posted for auction on Ebay.com I'm developing an online shop to sell the art that the core of my heart is in. Etsy.com is a popular site to sell your hand crafted items. It's kind of like the Amazon of crafters. Testing the waters is important before jumping into the pool with the sharks, so for right now I have two prints of my work (images above) for sale. If you would like to purchase prints you can click here to view my shop on Etsy.
I will continue to report how these efforts are fairing. Hopefully a few people out there will try something similar. We could compare notes.
