Earth-Friendly Art - Tree-Free Fantasy and Wildlife Cards

Hi Everyone!

As you know, my website presently showcases the fantasy art of computer games, so there's a lot of art out there that doesn't fit there at the moment. I can, however, introduce it to you on this blog.

Today, I'd like to introduce the art of Tree-Free Greetings: Earth-Friendly Cards & Gifts.
While most of their gorgeous collection is centered on wildlife, they do have a fantasy collection of fairies and angels. A handy keyword search lets you locate themes not formally indexed, such as dragons.
Products include not only cards, but gift bags and card sets in beautiful, collectible boxes.
An artist index collects all products featuring that artist's work (it's unsorted, unfortunately: use your browser text search if you're looking for a particular artist rather than just browsing). There are a few big names here like Brian Froud, Jonathan Earl Bowser, and Michele-Lee Phelan; but don't expect a huge portfolio of products from any one artist.

One of the most annoying things about the site is pricing: You can't really see it until you have entered your information and proceeded to checkout. For an idea of the price range, you can try, which carries some of their line. If doesn't have it on offer, you can probably get it cheaper directly through Tree-Free.

Another way to browse Tree-Free is through what appears to be a Canadian site for retailers, a no-frills site with PDF catalogues and wholesale pricing. Try their Wild & Natural / Western Life / Fairy World catalogue (the fairy stuff starts on page 9).
