In 2006 Fan Art Swap began. So far as part of Fan Art Swap there have been over 160 pieces of fan art made by 112 fan artists from all over the world.
Always vaguely fancied yourself as a singer and dancer but remain stubbornly unrecognised by society? Band played three gigs already, but your fans aren’t coming through with the material tokens of love? Think fan art is weird, hilarious and potentially the domain of interweb obsessives... but desperately want a piece of fan art immortalising yourself, to keep forever?
Then Love Your Work: Fan Art Swap is for you.
You create a piece of fan art for a beautiful, amazing, talented random person, and in turn, they will create a piece for, and of, you! Think you can’t do no Art? Don’t worry, it’s not about the art skills. This is fan art, baby—it’s about how much we can see the love.
Check out the Fan Art Gallery for images of amazing fan art from previous and current swaps!
