Busy in the studio today so this will be quick. First, you need to go over to the EHAG Emporium and check out the July giveaway.

The drawing is on July 30, so scurry on over to the EHAG Emporium now!
Secondly, I wanted to share "Sir Batty Bones" of Covington, with you. Sir Batty Bones was an ace flyer before we knew about airplanes....that's right, witches aren't the only ones that belong to flying corps. Sir Batty Bones could handle a broom with the best of them and was highly awarded with the "Order of the Bat" medal, which he proudly wears on formal occasions. So adept was he in flight that the bats would join him in aerial formations and fill the night sky with wings aflutter.
In his youth it was said he and his band of bats could scare with the best of them. Many a boy and girl had their hair raised (literally) by Sir Batty Bones' corps on Halloween night, as they loved to swoop down on the trick or treaters grabbing children's pigtails and ponytails hoping for a dropped piece of candy.
Sir Batty Bones still flies, he just leaves the mischief up to his proteges now....or so he says. He still looks like he has plenty of playful tricks running through that empty space in his head!
Hope you like him!
