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!

logistics stuff

Okay, all you web-mistresses and misters may be interested in these numbers...
The Hallowe'en tour, as it ran in 2011, took up 117MB of webspace, 69MB of this was dedicated to the artists and their art. The Hallowe'en extras (including the backgrounds on the artists' pages) took up 48MB.

So that means each of the 24 artists had between 2.5 and 3MB of space. What does that mean? If I want more artists, I'll have to drop some of the extras, which is fine. When I asked for ideas to improve the tour, the most frequent comment was that there were too many things to look at, too much stuff to see. This year the plan is to focus on the art and the bats!

Have an opinion? Let me hear it!

  1. Maybe there should be either some rules as to what we can or cannot post, or if we should have approval of a post on the blog beforehand (I wondered about that and think I should have asked), or perhaps all the artists can contribute a small amount to have this blog put on a domain, so we can have more space? Just thinking...
