First and foremost: We want to thank each and every one of you who has either visited or submitted to Phirebrush. Without you, the site would never have been what it was!

Onto the bad news. After our longer-than-planned hiatus, we've come to the decision that we just don't have the time to give Phirebrush the love and attention it deserves. We originally aimed to provide every artist a voice in the online art community, but now there are many outlets doing just that. We're proud of the many artists who got their first exposure here and have gone on to do amazing things and become some of the most recognizable names around.

Will we be gone forever? Only time will tell. But for now, this chapter of Phirebrush has come to a close.

We'll still keep the Phirebrush Twitter and Facebook pages alive to keep you informed of our future.

Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
