Sorry I’ve missed so many Fan Art Fridays… when things get busy at the end of the week I lose track of stuff! Anyway, here’s another bit of Francis fan art (which was delightfully titled “Revenge is Sweet”), but I unfortunately don’t know who to credit it to. If it’s you, step forward!
Hey folks. I had to take an involuntary week off from the comic this week. I made the bonehead move of leaving my laptop one city over and wasn’t able to retrieve it until tonight (when the comic is supposed to go up). Thus, I also wasn’t able to log in to share this with you until now. Also, apologies to people who were waiting on comment approval.
There WILL be a strip up next week, so please just think of this as a quick vacation for me. If you’re missing Bardsworth and want more of it in your life, consider downloading the novel (nudge nudge, wink wink).
Thanks for your patience, folks.
For a while I was struggling to come up with some fun ideas for regular content updates for my $10 and up Patreon subscribers. Then I stumbled on a way of keeping up with the updates and flexing my art muscles! I’ve started doing portraits of the characters and experimenting with digital painting techniques. I figure by the time I get done doing all of my main and supporting characters, I should have some decent painting chops!
If you want to see these, as well as all previously uploaded patron-only content, become a $10 a month subscriber! You also get the monthly wallpaper, access to a large archive of old wallpapers (going all the way back to the beginning of the strip), and the satisfaction of helping out an independent artist. I think that’s worth the price of a few Starbucks coffees a month, don’t you?
Here are the teasers for the first couple of portraits…
Sorry, I’ve been missing a few FAFs, so continuing on our Francis journey is Prince Francis! This came my way after I first revealed that Francis was a “demon prince” (a rather simplified way of putting it, as you’ve come to find out). I wish I could remember who sent this to me, so if you happen to be following me, speak up! I like to give credit where credit is due.
After many years and many posts talking about it, the paperback version of the first Bardsworth novel, Starting Over, is now available for preorder! From now until Sunday, May 31st if you preorder the paperback version of Starting Over, you will receive a signed copy and a coupon code for a free ebook version through Smashwords! I might even throw a little something extra into the envelope when I ship the book to you. 😉
