Artist Interview: Tim McFarlane

This interview is with Philadelphia based artist, Tim McFarlane. In the interview, McFarlane mentions how he discovered art in High-School and the effect it had on him. He also describes his process, in detail, and how the computer is sometimes a part of his practice. Dealing with creative block is also part of the discussion and how he has come to accept that taking a day away from the studio can bring a "fresh perspective" when returning to work. McFarlane also shares his personal 'mantra' for when studio life needs a recharge. Have a listen below for more!
