“IT’S PLAYTIME :)”
I talk about Creating Simple Shaped Cats in Watercolour, how Painting is Just like Lucid Dreaming, and ask, Is Paint Conscious? This was the third set of 8 days for the 2019 Cats of June Art Challenge :)
‘ Talk About Psychedelics ‘ was this weeks random topic, and it ends up being a right trippy episode talking about, Lucid Dreaming, Mushrooms vs Technology and how Fear appears to be Controlling Society. I also wonder, Are Our Memories Really Dreams?, Are Mushrooms Creating Our Dreams?, and Are Psychedelics Bad, or have we been lied to? I also talk about Why Sketching in Crappy Sketchbooks is a good idea, a Lucid Dreaming Stabilisation Technique Steve Job and I Created within a Lucid Dream lol, how Lucid Dreaming is like a Fear Playground, and there’s a bit about the Fear of Success. Hope you enjoy :)
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*

LATEST ART CONTENT
‘Take off your Hat and Talk about your Hair’ was this weeks random topic, selected by new employee Dennis the Doggy lol This was a scary episode, where I show my bald patches on camera and talk about my Hair Insecurities and Self Acceptance; I almost didn’t release this one, through Fear of what people may say, but as I talk about on the episode … the only way to deal with Insecurities is to start talking about them, which will hopefully lead to Self Acceptance. Hope you find this one interesting.
‘What are you currently Struggling with?’, is this weeks random topic … and it ends up being an episode about the Struggles of trying to Curate and Focus an Instagram feed: How do you decide what to focus on, when multiple Passions seem right? Do you even need to curate an Instagram Feed? Why is Focus so bleeding hard? lol This one’s a bit like being a pinball bouncing around inside my brain as I try to work out what to do. Hope you like this one :)
‘Talk about your Families Reaction to you being Transgender’ was this weeks random topic. I talk about my experience of Coming Out As Transgender with my Mum, Dad, Niece, Nephew, and Sister; even ringing my Sister up at the end to talk about how she feels about me being Transgender. Hope you like this one :)
This be the first of the new format, where I have 15 minutes to talk about a random topic :) The subject for this episode was … ‘Talk About My SVSLearn Creative Composition Study Notes’; it ends up mostly being about: The Importance of Thumbnails, How Nature Uses Fractals to Create Tings, and How Designing is just as much Fun As Drawing :) Hope you like it.
This one’s about Iterating in Public, and how I’m going to try a new format for the show. I also talk a lil about my time at a recent Life Drawing class with the amazing Ian Barlow, and a few other bits and bobs. Hope you enjoy it :)
This was a weird one! I was trying to record a different episode talking about some of my Inspirational People, but it was taking so long I thought … let’s make this weeks topic about how stuff takes longer than you think :) Turns out there’s a name for it too, it’s called Hofstadter’s Law. Hope you enjoy this lil one :)
