Feed Your Soul: the free art project – Monday Downloads April 27th!

Monday’s Feed Your Soul downloads are here!

Plus, join the Feed Your Soul Flickr Group and share how you use the free downloads. I’d love to see them hung up in your home, in your cube at work or wherever you have them and however you are using them! I am planning another Feed Your Soul and Boycott the Recession Chronicle Books contest and you will have to join to win anyway. Details on that later today. 😉

1. How do you describe your work?

I’d describe my work as illustration rather than art. It’s literal storytelling through pictures in traditional mediums.

2. What are your inspirations in your art and life?

Inspirations in art tend towards the fantastic. I love Patrick Woodroffe partly because he experiments with so many different mediums. If you can get hold of it I’d definitely recommend the book ‘A Closer Look with Patrick Woodroffe’ as he talks about all of the different processes he uses to make his work, it’s a real inspiration and great technical insight. I also love any form of automata. Rodney Peppe’s books on making automata are brilliant, particularly as a beginner. For inspiration outside of technique and presentation I tend to be mostly influenced by writers. I love Nabokov, Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Terry Pratchett…and tons more

3. What do you do to help feed your soul?

I used to meditate every day, these days I do it once a fortnight. I keep meaning to find the time to do it more often, but I’m grateful for the once a fortnight experience. I find painting is incredibly restorative, I can sit down to paint feeling dreadful and get up 3 hours later feeling reborn. I also read books avidly and can’t think of a better position than sitting in front of the fire with a book and a cup of tea.

About Tricia McKellarTricia McKellar is a mixed media artist & photographer in North Carolina, USA. Her dreamy photography marries original photographs with digital painting. Wanderlust & the Southern landscape inspire many of her works. You can see more of her work on her Blog, Flickr & Esty Shop.

1. How do you describe your work?

My work is original photography often with digital painting.  I’m more interested in conveying a mood or a feeling than presenting a documentary-style photograph. I think of my photography as storytelling with a lot of creative license. 🙂 

2. What are your inspirations in your art and life?

I’m never happier than when I’m out with my camera, watching the birds, feeling the sun on my face, re-discovering the beauty of nature– maybe it sounds a little corny, but it’s true. Sometimes it’s easy to get caught up in the stress of life and forget to slow down and appreciate the wonderfulness around you. For me, somehow, holding my camera cues my brain to let go of all the stuff that’s happening in my life and enjoy what’s in front of me.

3. What do you do to help feed your soul?

I create art and try be thankful for all the blessings in my life.
