We’ve been hard at work over at our sister site, Foliotwist, adding some new features for our artists (as well as planning for the future) and we’d love for all of you to come by and try us out!

Right now we have a full featured 30-day free trial, with probably the quickest setup on earth. :) We’ll get your art website live and online in about half a minute, and then you’ll have plenty of freedom to customize it, add artwork, and explore our intuitive, made-for-artists interface. Do as much or as little as you want for 30 days, ask us any questions you’d like, or just give us feedback when you’re done!

(Best of all, we do NOT require credit cards or payment info to sign up for our free trial. We don’t ask for that stuff, because our goal isn’t to catch you with a surprise bill at the end of it. We just want you to see how truly easy a website can be.)
