Contest: Photograph Yourself in FBorFW Locations:
The Pattersons live in Milborough, Ontario (based on Burlington, Ontario), but over the 30-year run of For Better or For Worse®, they travelled to places near and far. For the 40th anniversary of the strip, we're holding a photo contest to celebrate their voyages! Take a picture of yourself in any of the locations listed here and send us your photos. We'll pick a winner at the end of April; Lynn will draw the winner as an FBorFW character!
New Website Features
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the strip, we're rolling out some new website features throughout the year. Keep an eye on our News Blog for more, or read on to see what we've done so far.
Deep Dive: Explore the FBorFW Archives
In 2014, Lynn’s crew tackled the enormous job of organizing, cataloguing, and carefully storing her career-long collection of artwork (see our blog feature on the process, and what we learned). We knew there were more than 10,000 comic strips, but we also estimated that Lynn has created more than 25,000 other pieces of artwork. On top of this, there were hundreds of photographs, media articles, press kits, and other documentation.
Many of these pieces got scanned and stored in a digital archive, and we thought it was time to pull out some interesting items, show them to Lynn, and ask her to tell us the stories behind them. Here’s the first instalment of our new Deep Dive feature, with more to come!
The first new project we released this year was our revamped Strip Catalog, where you can read the entire 40-year run of FBorFW from start to finish. Explore the whole cast of characters, browse by location, call up a random strip, or look in the right sidebar for other ways to explore!
