Ever since, I’ve been researching all I can about lucid dreaming and I’ve come up with a wacky idea that I believe is possible. I believe, you can become lucid in a dream, ask for a painting to manifest itself, than learn how to paint it during your dream, before painting it for real when you wake up.
Sounds mad, but there is evidence of this being possible.
I talk about my lucid dream, and how my experience was so joyful, it woke me up with a wet dream … eww … lol I also talk a bit about my early opinions on what is going on in the dream world, as well as how I think this all relates to art. Turns out, Lucid Dreaming isn’t something Magical either, it certainly feels like it is, but in fact, just like Art, it’s a Skill that can be practiced and Learnt by anyone.
Basically, YOU and I, can LEARN to CONTROL our DREAMS.

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.
What’s the Best Drawing Paper for Gesture Drawing? Sketching? and Realistic Pencil Drawing? Join me for episode One of the So Free Art Podcast, to find out :)
This weeks lil podcast is all about Trees; I think everyone should get themselves a little tree friend, they’re like a pack of smarties … they always have the answers :) I talk about my wise Tree Friend, Lucid Dreaming and do a bit of sketching outside at Saltrum, before my lead runs out.
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 :)
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.
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
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
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 :)
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.
