Totems as tribal art?

Thanks everyone for expressing your concern about my cat bite. :) I did go to the doctor's and she gave me antibiotics for it. It's gotten better since Friday so hopefully I'll get to paint again in a day or two.

Isn't it funny how we always leave things to be done tomorrow? You know when you don't feel like doing something right now so you tell yourself it can wait until tomorrow? Yeah! That can backfire sometimes.

Like you can get bitten by a cat and you can't finish a zillion atc's you've promised people you'll do. Ok, so it's not a zillion but I still have to do cards for 3 swaps. That alone is 12 cards and then another 10 for personal trade. Because I agreed before the tomorrow came along. :) And I have my eye on a 4th swap but I really had to hold myself back from signing up.

And for swaps the deadline is in 8-10 weeks but the mail is so unreliable that I cannot count on it to deliver on time if it's too close to the deadline. I mean, I had my cards get to USA in like 4 days but one set traveled almost 7 weeks which is concerning.

And I wanted to do some tribal art for The Butterfly Effect over the weekend to post today but as I said before, tomorrow came. :) So again, you get to see some "oldies" from my ATC stash.

Oh, wait. I just changed my mind! I did some totem animals for a swap and this kind of counts as tribal art, right? And this is the set that traveled for 7 weeks to US. :) It all fits! You'll get to see mermaids some other time.

Prepare your eyes for bright color overload. You've been warned! :)
I'm not gonna explain why I consider them my totem animals cause I already talked about it before although not in this context. So if you're really interested, you'll have to make some extra effort and click here. :)
And if I'm not too late, I'm linking to Artist in Blogland as well.
