How this worked: You signed up, you were given some random person's name - a different random person got your name - and then you did art and sent it along - and in return you get art.
This made me get off my butt and flex a college degree that I haven't really touched in 6 years. (Art degree, you ask? Yes... Art major turned programmer - bask in its glory).
So here was the painting I did (please excuse the HORRIBLE lighting and cell phone camera shot):
Today I just got my art and holy man was I excited... BEHOLD! A BOX!
Wait... what's that... CH? Chicago? no... Chatenooga?.... no no... Montana? (they're weird like that)... definitely not... that looks like... HOLY CRAP! IS THAT A COUNTRY CODE? (quick and speedy googley search because I'm geographically retarded...)
HOLY SHIT, THAT'S SWITZERLAND! WHOO HOO! INTERNATIONAL ART!
Let's get down to getting this open. Cut a little tape here, a little tape there...
Wow - this this was really packed well for overseas travel. (What is not evident is the surgical like precision I used with my scissors to get it open without damaging the art.)
Whoa! This is amazing. The color... the composition... I wish I was half as good. (please don't scroll back up to compare, it would shame me.)
So, to my overseas art buddy - you're an awesome artist. Thank you for my new wall art which I will display proudly.
