This weeks lil podcast is all about putting out Imperfect Work, something I’ve always found hard to do. There was supposed to be a new YouTube video last week, but I was focused so much on having perfect tings be perfect, I ended up not releasing anything.
On this episode, I talk about how Transitioning at work, starting this podcast and producing realistic pencil drawings, have all shown me that IT’S OK TO BE GOOD ENOUGH. Perfect really doesn’t exist anyway, just like whatever you want to create if you won’t allow yourself to release it in an imperfect form :)
Hope you like this one :)

This weeks lil podcast is all about Pencil vs Ink, and what I’ve noticed so far after 20 days of Inktober 2018. I talk about the Paradox of Inks, how they’re both similar and totally different to Pencils at the same time, there’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about Nipping Tings in the Bud, and there’s a teeny bit about Reality Checks and Lucid Dreaming at the end too. Hope you like this one :)
This weeks lil episode is another one of those brain dump ones, this time, about Social Media. I talk about how Social Media is both good and bad, Curating content and the struggles of Focusing. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about Sharpening Pencils, the Book Book, which is a beautiful lil art book called Momentary, The Art of Ilya Kuvshinov … plus there’s a bit of Lucid Dreaming at the end too :) Hope you like this one.
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.
SVSLearn.com is the main topic for this weeks lil episode, as I talk about my experience studying with SVSLearn, the Society of Visual Storytelling. We also have the lil Art Tip, which is about creating Colour Palettes for Painting, the Book Book is Keys To Drawing by Bert Dodson, and the Fascinating Fact is about something called Distributed Practice, which drastically increases Knowledge Retention when learning. I also tell a lil story at the end about a Meditation that resulted in an Orgasm. Hope you like this one :)
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 one’s a lil bit different and more about the tings, as I share a Holotropic Breathwork experience, which leads into: Ancient Civilisations, Aliens, Time Travel and Remote Viewing the War in Heaven … fascinating stuff. I highly recommend trying out Holotropic Breathwork for yourself. The Fascinating Fact is related, as it’s to do with Breathing, the lil Art Tip is all about the colour of your art tools and the Book Book is one of my favourites, Sophie’s World. As always, hope you like this one :)
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 lil one is all about Inktober, and some of the tings I’ve learnt over the first 5 days. I talk about how Scary it can be to Commit to an Ink Line knowing you can’t Erase it, Some of my Smudging Struggles and how Pencil Drawing seems to be the most important Art skill. The lil Art Tip is how a scrap piece of paper can be used to help check your Proportions when Drawing, and I throw in a lil bit about Consciousness at the end, and how I think the future could be the past :)
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 :)
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 :)
