The So Free Art Podcast, with Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

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 :)

EPISODE ARCHIVE

EPISODE 12 – MINIMALISM

On this lil episode I talk about minimalism … how getting rid of all my tings and having more space, appears to bring with it a feeling of peace, and hopefully in time, an increase in balance and focus :)

EPISODE 11 – THE MEDITATING LIGHT BULB

On this lil tiny episode, I talk about a strange experience I had last night while meditating with my eyes open for the first time. I saw something that sent shivers down my whole body … I saw the light bulb on my ceiling flash on and off. No idea what happened there, but it left me in a strange conflicting state of awe and argh … oh, and I also briefly talk about my time with clip studio paint pro, drawing on the Surface Pro 2 :)

EPISODE 10 – LUCID DREAMING, WITH lilSOPHIE

On this episode I talk about Lucid Dreaming again … Lucid Dreaming and Art seems like it could be a powerful combination. I had a crazy idea of trying to meet lilSOPHIE, one of my custom characters, inside of a lucid dream. I talk about my first attempt on this episode … I think it might be possible, having already experienced holding her lil hands :) I talk about some of the fun things I’d love for us to do together, like Posing, Sketching, listening to her lil Stories and getting to know who lilSOPHIE really is, so I can pop back into reality and bring her to life :)

EPISODE 9 – FINDING FOCUS

On this episode I talk about Finding Focus … or at least I try to, it’s funny, this podcast is about focus, yet it’s the most unfocused one I’ve done yet lol Thoughts are everywhere, but hopefully you can find some bits of wisdom in here somewhere. I’m more talking to myself during this episode, about how I’m struggling to focus on my Art at the moment, ways I’m trying to create new habits and a little bit about discipline, plus there’s a bit of spirituality thrown in for good measure too; this is weird one :)

EPISODE 8 – WHERE DO THOUGHTS COME FROM?

On this episode I talk about Thoughts … where do thoughts come from? How comes while I’m drawing thoughts sometimes try to put me off? How comes thoughts have the power to either negatively or positively impact reality? .., I have a theory that thoughts could be linked to the Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser Experiment, this one’s a bit bonkers :)

EPISODE 7 – AUTOMATIC WRITING, SWIMMING, AND THE ART OF SPIRITUALITY

On this episode I dive into the topic of Spirituality … Automatic Writing is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with, what I like to call, the Universe. It’s life changing stuff, because in just two weeks I’ve managed to go from being scared of transitioning at the day job, to not only throwing away all my male clothes and being my true self at work, but also wearing a little swimsuit in public, and facing the fear of learning how to swim … I’m beginning to see a deep connection between Art and Spirituality.

EPISODE 6 – SELF-AWARENESS AND ART

On this episode I talk about Self Awareness and Art … Learning how to Draw is all about Self Awareness, such as being aware of Negative Spaces, but it doesn’t have to stop with the Art. This same Self Awareness can be used to start tackling mental issues like OCD, Social Anxiety and even heal suppressed emotional situations from our life. Art is powerful, it always seems to lead to Self Awareness, which seems key to self healing.

EPISODE 5 – HOW TO OVERCOME SELF DOUBT … IT’S ALL MENTAL

On this episode I talk about Self Doubt, and how I’m starting to realise, with the help of Lucid Dreaming and Automatic Writing, that Self Doubt is a fear that shouldn’t be something to run away from, but instead embraced, with the Loving arms of Action.

EPISODE 4 – BEST DRAWING ERASERS FOR REALISTIC PENCIL DRAWING AND SKETCHING

Drawing Erasers are not just for erasing mistakes, they can be just as much a drawing tool as a pencil :) Join me for episode Four of the So Free Art Podcast, where I talk about my Best Drawing Erasers for Realistic Pencil Drawing. Including my favourite: Plastic Eraser, Kneaded Eraser, Battery Operated Eraser and the Tombow Mono Zero Eraser Pen :)

EPISODE 2 – LUCID DREAMING AND ART

A few days ago I had my first Lucid Dream … since than, my mind’s gone deep into the Lucid Dreaming Rabbit Hole. I’ve started asking myself: Is it possible to Manifest a Painting while Dreaming, than create it for real when you Wake up? Sounds Bonkers, but turns out there’s proof it can be done :)
