I link here are generally services I use or have used, artists whose work I
like, charities I think are worthy of attention and, on rare
occasions, things I just think are cool enough to share. In general, I DO
NOT put up links for strictly commercial sites who ask me for them. I like
the sites here to be things I'm familiar with. I will
consider links to artists who ask if I like their work. I'm picky like that.
While link backs are appreciated, I don't require them for having your link
Villalobos Rescue Center
I have great respect for Tia Maria Torres and the
sacrifices she makes to run the nation's largest pit bull rescue. And
she helps parolees who want to help themselves by turning their lives
around as well.
Homeless & Orphaned Pet Endeavor
Houston Pagan Pride Day has supported this wonderful homeless pet
shelter for several years now. They are among the best no-kill shelters
in Houston! Awesome, awesome people the Pagan Pride volunteers love for
You saw them on Extreme Home Makeover, now you can help support the good
work they do! Though EHM revitalized their shelter, the support needs to
continue as the feeding and care of all of those animals is ongoing.
Texans, show your love for these wonderful folks who help our furry
Shepherd Conservation Society
You've seen them on Animal Planet's "Whale Wars". Now you can
support these sea-faring warriors in their battles against whaling and
the slaughter and destruction of other sea life. Donate, purchase
merchandise, apply for a Visa card which gives part of your purchases
back to the organization or take a more active role! You can also
subscribe to their newsletter to stay informed about Sea Shepherd
Center for Hearing & Speech Being partially deafened by continuous ear infections as a child, I can
definitely support an organization which helps teach deaf children to
speak and helps them to get procedures such as cochlear implants to let
Art Zone Daz 3D's art gallery/community site.
Growing daily and presenting feature chats and other cool events!
Cafe Press Another site with tons to offer. Their designer tool isn't as
feature rich and is a little clunky, but still cuts your production
time. Major downside: not as much control over pricing. Their
marketplace pricing (what most people see) can be high enough to drive
customers away at times or skewed to only give you a penny (or nothing)
in some cases
As long as you're careful not to put your art up unmarked
so it won't get swiped and pay close attention to the VALUE they're
putting on your art when they have a contest, DA can be a fairly nice
place to hang out with other artists and sell art stuff if you wish.
Gallery site specifically for fantasy and sci-fi art. Open to amateurs.
FantasyArtists.org Growing gallery/community site specifically for
artists who create sci-fi, fantasy and horror art.
Fine Art America Another "fine art" site seasoned with genre art. This one gets a lot
of international traffic from what I've seen.
Found Myself Primarily a "fine arts" community, but generously seasoned with
fantasy and sci-fi artists. Tends to be less clogged with the childish
drama that can go on with gallery sites
Project Wonderful Great advertising resource for artists & small businesses. Bidding
on ad space on a diverse selection of sites often allows you to
advertise for free on sites which have an audience overlap with your
subject matter. Offering good ad space on your site generally will pay
for monthly advertising campaigns if you have steady traffic.
RedBubble A more fine art/true designer oriented
merchandise site minus all of the people rehashing the works of old
masters, internet memes and lousy clip art. Limited scope of
merchandise, but adding work is super fast and there s a nice artist
cmmunity at work on the site.
A great source for digital artists as well as traditional artists and
writers. Great freebies and great forums. Contests and events galore!
Sheezyart Great site if you need somewhere to dump art for free. Allows page
customization without having to pay, but often overrun with childish
SpreadShirt A lesser known merchandise site. The competition isn't quite as huge
here. They also have some really cool things other sites don't offer,
like metallic, fuzzy and fluorescent print media. Their shop building
system does leave a lot to be desired, though. It is not feature rich at
Support Pagan Artists Artist listings by state & craft, mailing list and other features to
help Pagan artists network and be seen.
Zazzle Massive ammounts of products from t-shirts to
tea pots and everything in between. Their feature rich product designer
means you can make a few versions of your image and design to your
heart's content with little fuss. Excellent marketing by Zazzle to
lighten your load, too.
