It is my deep, dark pleasure to announce the annual Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Tour! This is my "treat" to you all, a special way to celebrate my favorite season, share some exceptional art by artists I personally admire and raise money for animal charities. With this blog, I hope to keep you up-to-date with proceedings and progress as we approach the yearly "launch" on October 1st!

Both the 2012 poster and bookmarks are now ready! If you know me, I hate leaving things to the "last minute", and besides I wanted to incorporate Bat World onto both, so they are now both viewable by clicking here. Feel free to copy the poster jpg and bookmarks pdf and distribute, I'd appreciate any help in advertising that you can offer! And so do the bats!

Believe it or not, I finally gave in and put the tour on Facebook, even though I believe it to be evil and far scarier than any Hallowe'en thing imaginable. (People actually post their suicide notes on there??? What the ???) Here's the link: Is it possible to get a "like" button on an Event? Help! It's a learning experience for me, I should hire a 13 year old!
Anyway, here's what will happen when YouTube, Twitter and Facebook merge:

Bat World Sanctuary joins the tour!

I am grinning like a Jack o'lantern with happiness! I invited Bat World Sanctuary and they have jumped onto our haunted hayride and will be sharing with Bat Conservation International the privilege of being our honored bat conservation charities! All participating artists can now choose to give their participation fee to either Bat World or BCI, while both groups will help to advertise our tour. It's a win-win arrangement, as the additional advertising will generate additional sales which will create more donations, as many artists give part of their earnings to the bats. 2012 is looking very bright!
