Time for the newest Print Swap: v19!

Here's a chance for you to get your picture hanging on someone else's wall, and to get a brand-new print all your own.

Per the forum's voting, this will be a semi-annual occurrence. Here we have the winter 2013-14 version: just in time to sign-up before the holidays, have a nice time with your family/friends/loved-ones, and send your prints out after the holidays.

If you've never participated, welcome! I hope that you enjoy yourself here. If you've participated before, welcome back. The rules are mostly the same but please note especially the changes to duration and deadlines. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask me.

We understand that postal services in some parts of the world can be less-than-reliable, so please stay in communication with your partner as to when prints are shipped/received so that nobody is left wondering where his or her print has gone.

RFF Print Swap 19

Theme

There are no restrictions on subject matter. Let your creativity run wild.
There are no restrictions on print medium. However, in the interests of archival integrity, silver-halide prints (for B&W) or inkjet prints (for color) are recommended. If you have a preference for a certain style of print please discuss that with your partner.

Procedure

Sign-ups will be open for 14 days. After sign-ups are closed I'll partner partners by drawing names out of a figurative hat. The list will be posted here and emailed to all participants. (Each participant will be partnered with, and swap prints with, one other participant. If there are an odd number of applicants, I will join so that we become an even number of participants.)
It is up to each participant to contact his/her partner and arrange shipping details.
Print size is up to you. Consider this a case of quality-over-quantity.
When you have received your print, let us know about your experiences. Feel free to post a picture of the print to the thread!

Hi all, I'm going to keep the sign-ups open for another week. Seems like putting it over Christmas wasn't the smartest idea. :rolleyes: Hope you're all enjoying time with your families/friends/&etc.!

I got my (beautiful) print from Amarildo ("Moreno"). He sent his directly from the printmaker to me.

I sent mine to him via USPS so it may or may not get there in our lifetime :D

EDIT: We both selected picked prints from each other's online galleries. Here is the one that I selected from Amarildo's gallery:

THANK YOU Tom!
I have just received your prints from the post office!
The prints are special! Great work!
One is for sure... you are not a minimalist! ;-)
