    Fantasy Art Shop open!

    But wait, you might be thinking... didn't Ellen shut down the giftshop?

    My aim was to get out of the merchandise end of things. Making products and the shipping, invoicing, royalties end of things - I was done with that. I am going to continue doing coloring books and other group items, but I want artists to sell their work.

    So, I have re-featured the Fantasy Art Shop for them: now, you can browse through the available work and go buy it directly from them, or from someone that they have licensed their artwork to.

    All product links are verified for accuracy, and can be reported, and all artwork is still screened for quality and relevance, so you can shop here knowing that your purchases treat the artists fairly and that your browsing experience will be enjoyable.

    Over the next month, many additional improvements will be added, and more artwork is being added daily. Submissions are generally open now, so encourage your favorite artists to add their work!

    See the new shop here!

    Security reminder

    Last month, I found out that the EMG-Zine reader database and Portrait Adoption customer database had been hacked. Please, please make sure that your information is safe and change your passwords. The information that they got from your accounts and the damage they can do here is very minimal, but if you use the same password here that you use for your email, there's a very good chance that bad people have access to it.

    As soon as I found out, I added a note to last months EMG-Zine news, and also to all of the login pages at Portrait Adoption and EMG-Zine. I also mailed both mailing lists. If you aren't signed up for these lists, you really should be! I don't spam, just send periodic, summarized updates and important security alerts like this one. Mailing lists are at the bottom of every EMG-Zine page, or here for the Fantasy Art Shop and artists or here for Portrait Adoption.

    You can read more details and my personal reaction to the ordeal here.
