On this episode, I talk about how I WAS TERRIFIED AT FIRST but now see that sketching people in public helps LOOSEN UP YOUR DRAWING and LOOSEN UP YOUR MIND.
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 :)
What a Beauty this lil Art Book is! I love it, I have a feeling in years to come, Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon, will go down as one of my all time favourite art books … it’s So Simple, yet So Inspiring. For such a lil Art Book, it packs in so much wisdom; Every single page is full of Juicy Creative Goodness. Hope you have fun with this one :)
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 :)
‘Take off your Hat and Talk about your Hair’ was this weeks random topic, selected by new employee Dennis the Doggy lol This was a scary episode, where I show my bald patches on camera and talk about my Hair Insecurities and Self Acceptance; I almost didn’t release this one, through Fear of what people may say, but as I talk about on the episode … the only way to deal with Insecurities is to start talking about them, which will hopefully lead to Self Acceptance. Hope you find this one interesting.
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 :)
In this lil episode I share some stories from my brief time throwing paint around, while trying Abstract Painting for the first time. As someone whose really only done pencil drawings before, this was a totally different experience … I found to be Fantastically Freeing, and Massively Messy :)
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 ‘About The Tings’ episode is about the Lucid Dreaming, and some of My Recent Lucid Dream Experiences. Including such Lucid Dreams as: The Shopping Trolley of Death, Whose in the Mirror?, G-Forces, Battlecat, Look into the Eyes, Dream Healing, and Get Me Out of Here! … I finish it all off talking about the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Hope you enjoy this one, Sweet Dreams :)
‘ Read one of your Diary Entries – Experiences ‘ was this weeks lil topic, and it ends up being a pretty Deep conversation about the Power of Affirmations. I talk about going to Art Class as me for the first time, how all Beliefs are both True and Lies at the same time, and a recent Negative Mental Relapse which strangely fits into the episode nicely, in order to highlight just how Important and Powerful Daily Affirmations are in helping you to Face Your Fears … there’s even a bit about the Cats of June Art Challenge too. Hope you enjoy this ‘I need a Drink’ episode :)
This one’s about the Lucid Dreaming, and some of my recent Lucid Dream Experiences. Including: a Self Aware Taxi Driver who drove me into a Previous Dream, moving stone blocks with my Mind, becoming a Ghost in another Reality, getting Distracted by Naked Breasts, and a house I couldn’t Escape from, resulting in a string of False Awakenings … there’s even a lil story about a Purring cat who was sat on my bed. Hope you enjoy this one, Sweet Dreams :)
