Our First-Ever Secret Santa, Artist Portrait Swap

December 06, 2014

It’s become tradition around here to have fun with Holiday/New Year’s Cards and as this year’s holiday season approached, in addition to our normal holiday cards to friends and customers, we wanted to do something new with our artists. We thought about how much we love getting to know the artists who contribute work to our campaigns but about how it’s always a 1-1 connection, us to them and back. We have yet to do much to help connect our artists with each other. That’s why about a month ago we invited anyone who has contributed to a CAN campaign to signup for a Secret Santa Portrait Swap. The idea was that everyone would create a portrait of a fellow CAN artist and receive one from someone else. 39 talented and incredibly diverse individuals of all ages and from all over the world signed up and are now receiving their gorgeous portraits and their first personal contact from another CAN artist! Thanks to everyone who participated! Take a look at their work:

Bonus Selfies!! I'll keep adding them as they come in:
