Hi all!  A week from this Saturday it will be November 7.  Do you know what that means?  It means that ten years will have passed since the very first Bardsworth strip was posted online!  Ten cookie-loving years!  And for the ten-year anniversary, I have several things planned.  They are:

1.)  A wallpaper for everyone!  It’s been a long time since I did a free wallpaper, and I think ten years is significant enough.  It won’t be the most exciting wallpaper, but it’s a special one to me, and I hope it will be to you as well.

2.)  A Google Hangout chat with yours truly!  Since November 7 happens to be a Saturday, I will be making myself available for an hour-long (possibly longer) chat session at Google Hangout (I think I can even get a video feed going if I’m not mistake… if anyone is skilled in these sorts of things, let me know, because I’m hopeless).  This will be a good time to ask me questions about the comic or myself, discuss the finer points of webcomics, or debate which beers are better.  The time is to-be-determined, but I’m shooting for late afternoon or late evening.  Apologies to folks in time zones where that doesn’t work, but I have to work around both my wife’s and my son’s schedules.

cover-color-preview3.)  I will be launching an IndieGoGo campaign to fund the printing of the second Bardsworth collection!  It’s nearly completed at this point (just putting the final touches on it and making sure all ducks are in a row), and it will be ready to go to the printers in no time.

Lots of exciting stuff in the pipeline!  So stay tuned for more details on these and other things yet to be revealed.  And thank you for helping me make it to ten years!
