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.

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
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.
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 :)
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.
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.
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 :)
This lil episode comes to you live from the astral planes lol I talk about Out Of Body Experiences on this one, and a theory I have where I wonder if the Earth is a school for us babies, created by the creator, with the ultimate goal of growing new creators; are we destined to be a Creator … aka, a God? There’s also the lil art tip, which this week is about how a craft knife can be used to fix inking errors. Hope you like this one :)
This weeks lil podcast is all about Art Challenges, and some of the reasons why I believe doing an Art Challenge could be one of the best tings you ever do … even if it does feel a lil bit scary at first :) We also have this weeks lil Art Tip, which is to not waste time focusing on the details, by remembering to ZOOM OUT while Drawing Digitally and STEPPING BACK while Drawing Traditionally :)
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 :)
