REALISTIC PENCIL DRAWINGS
“CAPTURING FEMININITY IS WHERE MY HEART IS.
I started Drawing in 2013 just for fun; sketching random scenes from Anime, or trying to bring my favourite Videogame Characters to life. However, before I knew it, I found myself going down a more realistic route :)”

“In 2013 I had the idea of a character called lilSOPHIE … in 2017, I finally started to bring her to life. She’s a bit cheeky, but I’ll let her take over from here.
My creator, Sophie Lawson, calls me lilSOPHIE; so I like to call her big Sophie :) My little page is a bit like me at the moment, not fully formed lol, but soon, once big Sophie gets off her fat arse, I’ll be sharing some of my daily affirmations with you … and maybe a little bit more, eww, does that sound rude?” *hides face*
THE SO FREE ART PODCAST
Released EVERY SUNDAY, this is a lil PODCAST about ART and tings :)
Art has been very powerful in my life, so the show will cover some of the ways Art is helping to heal and improve my life, as well as drawing and painting tips, and fun things that help make me, and hopefully you, a better Artist and Human Being :)
This lil episode is all about something I got hit with recently … Overwhelm. I talk about how I think I need videogames in my life for balance, how Transitioning takes up a lot of time, remembering why I started Drawing in the First place, Floatation Tanks, Swimming, Reiki Healing … I even talk about turning my Willy into a Fanny on this one lol
In this lil episode I talk about an experience I had on the bus today that was both funny, and awkward at the same time … but it made me realise how Social Anxiety, Fears and everything in life can be viewed either positively or negatively. I share some Art, Transgender and even Lucid Dreaming experiences too, that prove we really are in control of our thoughts.
In this lil episode I share some stories from my brief time throwing paint around, while trying Abstract Painting for the first time. As someone whose really only done pencil drawings before, this was a totally different experience … I found to be Fantastically Freeing, and Massively Messy :)
It’s that time of year again … when the sun comes out to play, so do the drawing pencils :) It’s time to start sketching people in public, something I was terrified to do at first, but it’s one of the most fun ways to improve, and loosen up, both your drawing, and the mind :)
There was supposed to be a new YouTube video this week, but it never happened because I wanted things to be perfect … so instead of putting something out that wasn’t perfect, I put nothing out :( This week I talk about something I find really hard to do … putting out imperfect work. and how it’s better to put something out that’s good enough, than nothing at all.
This week I talk about my first time floating in a float tank … one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever have. I recorded this one down the park, and just as I was finishing up, the episode got gate crashed by a bloke called Nick playing a guitar … so this one gets very random at the end :)
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
