Fan Art Swap

From Arts on Sunday, 1:43 pm on 17 June 2012

If you've ever liked the idea of having your portrait done and you have a whacky sense of humour then getting involved in a fan art swap could be just for you. But in order to get some love you have to give some love. You don't have to be a celebrity (be it that that's one of the origins of fan art - see Justin Bieber fan art) and it doesn't require any level of artistic skill, just a bit of imagination, a touch of madness and some postage stamps to send it off on its way. Sonia Sly finds out more when she speaks to graphic designer/ fan art swapper and lover Kalee Jackson whose blog www.loveyourwork.org came out of her desire to connect with others.
