The original artwork was done by belly dancer and graphic artist Brandi Centeno who also did the early Awards of Belly Dance flyers and video covers. She expanded the artwork to be a full belly dancer with a skirt. But we mostly used the half tart logo.
Why was she called the half tart? It's an inside joke. We had a full belly dancer logo and half of one. Not sure if it was Carolynn Ruth or I in one of our brain storming sessions who jokingly referred to her as the half tart the first time. As opposed to of course the full tart. And so the name stuck. And that is the story of the half tart.
