“IT’S PLAYTIME :)”
time to let go
“If only letting go of bad habits and fears, was as easy and as fun as letting go of, and popping, these balloons …
This Affirmation highlights beautifully the problem with Perfectionism, and the Struggles of Letting Go.
Big Sophie wasn’t going to release this one, Not Good Enough she kept saying, but I forced her to, because if you keep waiting for tings to be perfect, you’ll never release anything; so we both know this one isn’t perfect, but because it isn’t … it kind of is :)
Sometimes you’ve just got to see where the wind takes you, and accept, that it’s Time to Let Go.“
days 27 to 31
I talk about Days 27 to 31 of Inktober 2018, where I Inked Seven Anime Characters, turned Seven Videogame Characters into lilSOPHIE’s and realised I maybe Sacrificed too many Important tings, aka, I need a rest :)
also includes an Inktober 2018 YouTube Video :)
SO FREE ART PODCAST
This weeks lil episode is more about the tings, as I talk about Interpreting Dreams with Automatic Writing.
There’s also the Book Book, which is Understanding Dreams by Keith Hearne and David Melbourne, and for a bit of arty tings, we have the lil Art Tip, which is a super easy way to create the effect of squinting when working digitally.
Hope you like this one :)
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 :)”
You can view more of my Art on my INSTAGRAM @Sophie.Lawson
“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
This lil episode is all about copying other artists work, not the naughty kind of copying, but the drawing exercise that’s a fun way to play and learn at the same time :) We also have a new ‘lil art tips’ feature joining the podcast this week, woohoo lol
In this lil episode we take a peek inside the how to draw book, Keys to Drawing with Imagination, by Bert Dodson; an incredibly fun book, packed with tons of: sketches, exercises and wise words from the master that is, Bert Dodson :)
This lil episode’s more like a therapy session about my struggles of finding balance between work and play. I talk about sacrificing Videogames, how the Discipline of saying no to chocolate bars is helping me say NO to bigger temptations, and how you need to work out what to stop completely vs cut down on; this ones all about Finding Balance … oh, and I also share another healing Lucid Dream I experienced during the week :)
This lil episode covers a lot of topics, but mainly it’s about my early experience of using Lucid Dreaming to help heal from Child Abuse … I also talk about Virtual Reality with PSVR, are Videogames bad for you?, a Reiki Healing ‘Healing crisis’, Following Your Bliss, Genital Reassignment Surgery and how I think from time to time we all have to stop and ask ourselves … What do I really want From Life?
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.
