Well, here it is and here's why - Pick-A-Themes. I signed up for 3 groups over two different swaps.
In a pick-a-theme, there are five people in your group, and each chooses a theme - something that they collect (mine for both swaps was lemurs, one in traditional Malagasy clothing, the other "stonepunk"). Then you make for each person a card in their chosen theme - meaning they get four cards with the same theme by four different artists, and sometimes interpreted in different ways.
I started with an eye-dea.
