To everyone celebrating our great nation here in the US and abroad, I hope you’re all having a wonderful Fourth of July weekend!

I’ll be taking a few days off to enjoy a bit of vacation time, but we’ll be back to normal next Sunday with our regular schedule of articles. See you then!

Last week’s articles on EmptyEasel:

And, just in case you’re frustrated with your current art website. . .

Head on over to Foliotwist (our sister site) and see what Zac and I have been working on! This year we’ve added several new features that our artists are loving, AND for July only we’re running a special promotion for EmptyEasel readers!

Here’s how it works:

Sign up for our free 30-day art website trial before the end of this month, and your first paid month at Foliotwist will only cost $1. Just mention “Summer Sale” to us anytime (by email, over the phone, etc) and we’ll give you the discount. If you decide Foliotwist isn’t for you, that’s OK too—there’s absolutely no obligation join!

As an extra bonus, if you tell a friend about Foliotwist, and they end up becoming a paying member, your second paid month will only cost $1 as well. There’s no limit on the number of friends you can refer.

This promotion ends July 31st, so make sure to get signed up for a free trial before then. As always, if you have any questions about this, or anything else Foliotwist-related, don’t hesitate to let me know!
