Feeding Your Soul…call for artists

After being on hiatus since March (with only one update since then from artist Lisa Solomen) I’ve decided to revive Feed Your Soul: the free art project and I’m looking for artists who want to contribute.

Who:

Over 110 + artists have contributed a free print that folks can download and print out for personal use.  Previous contributors include:  Ryan Berkley, Gemma Correll, Jessica Swift, Jen Oaks, Amy Ruppel + more.

What:

Since 2009, I’ve been sharing  FREE ART with you from artists that I have invited to participate in the project. Each invited artist contributes a print that you can print out on some cardstock and frame or even just thumbtack to the wall.

Why:

Well, I love art and I know you do too. I also know that when people start to tighten up the purse strings they tend not spend money on things that aren’t necessary for survival, things like books, magazines and art. But, art is important for your soul. It helps rejuvenate, it’s thought-provoking, offers inspiration and can generally brighten an otherwise dreary day…among other things. In addition to helping to brighten your day, I want to help promote some of my favorites artists as well as art appreciation in general. I’m also hoping that the enjoyment of free art will lead more people to understand the importance of buying art from the artists themselves.

How:

If you are an artists and want to get involved, send me an email and I will take a look at your work. Work that is contributed to the Feed Your Soul Project should be something that you create just for the Project and should fit  8.5 x 11 inch paper to make it easy for art lovers to print it out themselves. It should also only be available on the Feed Your Soul site and not also for sale.

If you are an art lover and want to enjoy some of the already contributed art, just go here.

When:

I hope to resume sharing contributions in August. I’m shooting for 2 new downloads a month.

P.S. The artwork used above is available for download and was contributed by the lovely and talented Jessica Swift (née Gonacha).

  1. Hi, I like to send you an email about this project. But I can’t get outlook to work on my computer… Better in illustrating then computering.

  2. I am so happy you are back! My back wall of my cubicle is a talking point – I have hung a LOT of the art you have shared here. People come by for a break and to seek inspiration (or a happy moment!)
