Freebies

Want free high quality art prints? Head on over to Feed Your Soul. Each month artists are invited to participate and to contribute a print which is totally free and available for download. This project is coordinated by Jen Wallace of Indie Fixx to help art lovers feed their souls with art in these recessionary times and to help artists promote their work. The prints offered are continually updated so check back often. Below are some of the artists who have contributed so far.

Photobucket
1. Victoria Usova 2. Melody Seal 3. Flossy Particles 4. Gemma Correll 5. Valentina Ramos 6. Shira Sela 7. Elsa Mora 8. Mandy Sutcliffe 9. Ryan Berkley

Want free poems already printed into tiny books? Visit Poems For All! Meant for scattering around town – ‘on buses, trains, cabs, in restrooms, bars, left along with the tip; stuffed into a stranger's back pocket. Whatever. Wherever. A project of the 24th street irregular press, which cranks them out to be taken by the handful and scattered like seeds by those who want to see poetry grow in a barren cultural landscape’. You can submit your poems, or opt to receive some in the mail for the cost of the postage. I didn’t have US stamps but had some left over US currency from an overseas trip so sent a dollar and received a bunch. Here's a current one, The Artists's Duty by Kenneth Patchen.

Want a little movie? Maybe it's about freeing ourselves. Finding where we belong. Who we belong with. Accepting our own unique beauty. Thriving.

I'm afraid I can tell you nothing new because every time I visit you I am left with the same thoughts - wonderful, beautiful, inspiring post. I need to remember to pop the corn before I get here though - the movies you show are always my favorite visit of the day. Very moving, very lovely. I'm off to catch up on you some more.

What a great idea for artists to share their work! Love some of these pieces. Thanks for sharing with us :)
And as for my own cookbook, that would be great! but Im not sure anyone would want to buy it.

Hey Harriet said...

Free art prints and free poetry? Bliss! Thanks so much for sharing those links Chrisy. I'll be checking them out! I must say that I do love the idea of secretly stuffing some poetry into a strangers pocket. Not sure I'd be game enough to try that, but...maybe... :)
