I have just finished packaging up a big order of the ‘Panthera Pair’ cards I made a while ago, and while doing so I was reminded that I quite forgot to mention them here! So, here goes… ‘Panthera Pair’ greeting cards are currently available in my shop.

The message I hoped to convey with the motif of a leopard and a tiger in peaceful repose is one of restfulness, peace and harmony… all good things to aim for at this time of year, and for always, methinks.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has purchased one of my limited edition ‘Panthera Pair’ prints in aid of the Panthera wild cat conservation group – I’m grateful to you, and so far we have together been able to donate $225 to Panthera! I still have some prints available, and I think they’d make excellent gifts or stocking-fillers for your animal-loving, conservation-minded friends and family (they receive a limited edition print and the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from knowing that 100% of the purchase price has been donated to a very worthwhile, much-needed conservation effort).

Place your orders for cards or limited edition prints by 11am (GMT) tomorrow (Tuesday 6 December) and I’ll make sure they’re in the post to you tomorrow afternoon for Christmas delivery *

The cards and limited edition prints are available in the bright orange/yellow colourways illustrated above, but also in crisp, minimalist black and white:

* international postal services willing!

Updated 6 Dec 2011, midday: there are some ‘Panthera Pair’ cards & prints still available in the shop, but postal delivery in time for Christmas (to destinations beyond Europe) can no longer be guaranteed…

‘Panthera Pair’ limited edition silkscreen print – detail

Close your eyes for a moment and imagine our planet without wild cats. No tigers. No leopards. No lions. No jaguars. (To name but a few of the 37 wild cat species, many of which are severely endangered). Doesn’t bear thinking about, does it!

Some months ago I watched the very compelling BBC documentary ‘Lost Land of the Tiger’ which documents the activities of a group of scientists (led by the CEO of the Panthera wild cat conservation group) as they work to gather data on the dwindling tiger populations in the Eastern Himalayan region and to figure out solutions for their future survival in the wild.

I am deeply impressed by their work and would like to support it as much as possible. These limited edition screenprints are part of that effort… and here, dear readers (yes, I am trying to butter you up :) is where you come in. These prints are for sale in my shop (a three colour print in vibrant yellow, orange & black, and a black & white version for the minimalists out there) – I will donate 100% of the proceeds of every print sale directly to Panthera. Together we can make a small, but not insignificant, difference!
