This week I re-discovered the beautiful writings of Henry David Thoreau. I say re-discover, because it turns out I have long admired his view and found motivation in his quotes. You see I keep screen shots of things that interest me and save these in a digital photo album. A mood board for my life. It is fascinating to me to go back and look through this album periodically. Especially from an art and style perspective. I can see where I have drawn on influences. Sometimes this album alone can get me out of a funk, re-inspire, motivate and centre me again. It is after all filled with images of things I love, admire, enjoy or desire and being a private album it is deeply personal.
So after diving deep into the written essays of Thoreau and falling in love with his calming life view, I then found a whole series of his quotes from years ago in my "Life Mood Board" album.
This in turn sparked a new product to work on - Cute inspirational printable postcards that feature my dreamy collages and some of my favourite Thoreau quotes.
