Since the storyline has been so Francis-centric, I figured I’d start throwing out some Francis art. This is yet another creation from Jessica/paisleypear. This would have made a fun t-shirt or a button or something.
First of all, let me apologize for the lack of content (other than the strip) and some radio silence last week. Not only has our life been crazy busy, but we were out of internet for almost a day and a half. Thankfully, I got the strip uploaded before it happened, but I wasn’t able to post about it anywhere, nor was I able to do a Fan Art Friday post. I will correct that this week.
In very important news, this has been a long time coming – almost as long as the release of the second print collection, which is also in the pipeline – but I will be putting the Bardsworth novel up for prorder very soon! Titled “Starting Over”, it’s a retelling of the Bardsworth story with many things added (and some things left out, just to warn you). It will be available as an ebook, and I will also be sending signed paperback copies to whoever preorders them (after the preorder time frame, the paperbacks will be available, unsigned, for purchase through CreateSpace). So stay tuned! I’m waiting for my proof copy to arrive so I can make sure everything is squared away, and then you can scramble to get your copy!
Here’s the cover (with extra special thanks to my amazing illustrator, Jackie Zysk):
Sorry for the colorless update, folks, it’s been a more-than-crazy week. I could sit here and list my excuses, but I’m sure you could better spend your time. Maybe not. If not, feel free to reread the archive. I do that when I get bored sometimes.
Anyway, check back soon for the color, or keep an eye one my many social networking profiles.
I’m glad these Fan Art Friday posts are spurring people into action! I received a message recently about some new fan art, based on old fan art! Below is the old pencil drawing of Fawn that I’ve been holding onto for years, and next to it is the newly inked version (8 years later, as claimed by the artist)! Thank you so much, Kate!
