A project spawned by my love for my own 2 PitBull "Babies"... Most of the dogs featured I have stumbled upon on the pages of the internet. Links to their stories will be included for further information. Art items are for sale in my ArtsyBullies etsy shop... Portions of the proceeds will be donated to Bully Rescue/Organizations.

ACEO or ATC "Artist Trading Cards" Pit Bull style!

What the heck is an ACEO or ATC you ask? Well Wikipedia defines it as:
Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards,[1] or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm),[2] small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.[3] The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland.[4] Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

Ok so with that being said... Here are my first 4! What I am going to do with these guys still remains to be seen... I will most likely offer ltd ed. signed prints of them to benefit rescue... All matted and ready for a frame of course but we are getting ahead of our selves!

"Tank" has this to say about BSL:

Have you ever noticed that sharing your life with a Pitbull type dog is like a skeleton in the closet? Or rather yet a little secret society... that one only admits when another says they have one first... Pikey is my little "Secret" in this one:

Stan would have been a rough an tumble gangster back in the day....Perhaps not but he's look super sweet in a fedora!

I always imagine Pikey as some sort of super Pittie... here's proof when he was about 12 weeks old.. he radiated positive energy!

Keep an eye out for more of these!!!

I also started a Fine Art America Profile!!!

As always thank you so much for supporting this project and sharing in on the Pittie Love!!!
