Save the bats


The white nose syndrome has already killed millions of bats over the past years in US and Canada. White nose is caused by a fungus - the evil Geomyces destructans - that prompts bats to wake from their winter hibernation and die after they fly into the cold air in a doomed search for insects. The syndrome spread threatens the survival of entire bat colonies and could push some species to extinction. Which, needless to say, would also screw up the entire ecosystem.

Hi folks, I'm Elise, half-artist, half-nerd. I love strong lines, color blocks and Dutch skies. I have done several painting exhibitions in Amsterdam, Den Haag and Rotterdam, and worked as a portrait artist. Now I mostly focus on illustrations and paintings on request (love to make people happy), and cartoons for myself. If you have the imperious need to hang something on your wall you can drop me an email there: elisetalgorn@yahoo.com
