This is one of several pictures I received from a reader named Jessica, who went by paisleypear on DeviantArt (looks like she hasn’t updated in quite some time). Not sure if she still reads the comic anymore, but I always loved the artwork she sent me and I always felt that if I were to ever pass along the artwork duties of Bardsworth to someone else, she’d be at the top of the list.
Here’s a preview of the wallpaper my Patreon subscribers will receive in April. It was an idea born from a quip I made in announcing one of the recent strips. Would you like to receive this wallpaper and a new one each month? For as little as a $1 a month you can, and you get to support Bardsworth! All you have to do is become a Patreon subscriber!
Today’s is one that I can’t attribute to anyone because I can’t read the signature (and can barely read the handwritten note), but it’s dated January of 2007, so it’s an older one. If anyone wants to claim this one, please step forward! I’ve always liked the way Fawn was drawn in this piece.
Today’s artwork is from, if I remember correctly (and if I remembered incorrectly, the rest of this post is pretty much moot), Bardsworth super fan Drew. Drew was around from the very early origins of Bardsworth and was always a big supporter. Haven’t heard much from him of late, so I hope all is well. In any case, his fan art is a reference to the fact that I used to take several weeks off from the strip starting in November and through the holidays back when I did Bardsworth three days a week (mostly due to traveling).

Back in the day when I had lots more free time (i.e. a full-time day job where I could screw around instead of work), I used to read loads of webcomics, and especially enjoyed reading newer ones. One of those at the time was called Seekers, which is still available to read online. It looks like Eph is still updating her site, but I’m not sure if she’s still doing the comic. Regardless, we traded fan art (maybe I’ll post mine on a Throwback Thursday on the Facebook page), and she did a lovely picture of Fawn for me (click to enlarge).
