This week is a bit different, I had a really random thing happened this morning where my alarm went off while I was sat on a packed bus, and instead of turning it off, I left it on … ringing away for over 20 minutes.
It was a Social Anxiety, awkward but funny experience, where I realised something … EVERYTHING IN LIFE CAN BE VIEWED either POSITIVELY, or negative … Including Social Anxiety and Fears.
I talk about Sketching in Public, Presenting as Female in public for the first time, and meeting Evil Entities in a Lucid Dream.
Hope you like this one :)

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 :)
In this lil episode we take a peek inside the how to draw book, Keys to Drawing with Imagination, by Bert Dodson; an incredibly fun book, packed with tons of: sketches, exercises and wise words from the master that is, Bert Dodson :)
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.
This lil episode is another one of those Art Focused Therapy Session ones, where I just empty the contents of my head into the microphone about the topic of Focusing on One Passion. I talk about the conflict of knowing I need to focus on Art, but feeling like I’m not able to … eventhough I know I am. I also talk about another Lucid Dream experience, Mindset while Drawing, Finding Balance, and this weeks lil Art Tip is all about the importance of Keeping Your Old Drawings :)
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 :)
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 :)
It’s that time of year again … when the sun comes out to play, so do the drawing pencils :) It’s time to start sketching people in public, something I was terrified to do at first, but it’s one of the most fun ways to improve, and loosen up, both your drawing, and the mind :)
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.
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.
I think this is the most out there lil episode I’ve done so far lol Something that’s always bothered me, is Why are some people born Transgender? I came up with a Theory this morning after a Lucid Dream, and it made me wonder, What if we’re inside of a Dream right now, and what if that’s got something to do with why some people are born Transgender. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about the fun of trying new things … and there’s even a bonus lil Art Challenge for you to do this week too :) Woohoo!
