Not a fan of Covid-19
But a fan of people
Given we all have a bit of time on our hands it seems like a good time for a fan art swap. We all need a little extra love right now, right?
As postal systems are pretty busy right now it’s going to be online only this time. Sign up by the end of March to take part!
This is what Love Your Work Fan Art Swap is about:
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 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 stranger, 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.
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.
