“I NEED TO DO LESS TINGS,
SO I CAN DO MORE TINGS BETTER.“
– Sophie Lawson
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.
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 :)
‘ Talk About Psychedelics ‘ was this weeks random topic, and it ends up being a right trippy episode talking about, Lucid Dreaming, Mushrooms vs Technology and how Fear appears to be Controlling Society. I also wonder, Are Our Memories Really Dreams?, Are Mushrooms Creating Our Dreams?, and Are Psychedelics Bad, or have we been lied to? I also talk about Why Sketching in Crappy Sketchbooks is a good idea, a Lucid Dreaming Stabilisation Technique Steve Job and I Created within a Lucid Dream lol, how Lucid Dreaming is like a Fear Playground, and there’s a bit about the Fear of Success. Hope you enjoy :)
This be the first of the new format, where I have 15 minutes to talk about a random topic :) The subject for this episode was … ‘Talk About My SVSLearn Creative Composition Study Notes’; it ends up mostly being about: The Importance of Thumbnails, How Nature Uses Fractals to Create Tings, and How Designing is just as much Fun As Drawing :) Hope you like it.
‘ 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 :)
What are Bogies? Just one of the questions I pose on this weeks episode, where I talk about Illness and tings like: How Lewis Hamilton having an illness inspired me, How even Monks get illness, The Universe is Always in Control, How we are Fragile Beings, I like Sneezing, You maybe Can’t Control illness, but you Can Control How You Respond to it. Being positive while being ill seems to come down to Awareness, everything seems to be about Awareness! Hope you enjoy this one :)
‘Talk about your Families Reaction to you being Transgender’ was this weeks random topic. I talk about my experience of Coming Out As Transgender with my Mum, Dad, Niece, Nephew, and Sister; even ringing my Sister up at the end to talk about how she feels about me being Transgender. Hope you like this one :)
This lil episode is about how Making Art should be Fun, and a time to Play. I realised something this week, I don’t enjoy realistic pencil drawings as much as I used to, which scared me at first until I realised, if you’re not having fun, stop doing it :) I also share another Lucid Dream experience, and this weeks lil Art Tip is about avoiding eye strain while Digitally Painting :)
This is the first unedited podcast I’ve ever done … well, there was a 5 second clip I cut out when I burped lol but apart from that, this was all done in one take. You know what, it felt Liberating :) I talk about Podcasting, Goals and a lil bit about Loneliness. The book book is Journeys Out of the Body by Robert Monroe, and the lil Art Tip is how 30 minutes of practice before bed, can lead to big improvements over time. I hope you like this episode … one of my goals from now on, is to do all future podcasts live, with no editing :) Woohoo! Happy 2019 :)
Something changed after last weeks fast of not eating any food for 50 hours, because ever since I’ve felt like a different person. It’s Time for Change, and this episode is all about it, Sacrifice and dealing with Videogame Addiction. It’s also episode 50, so to celebrate, I filmed this one in front of the webcam for YouTube. Woohoo! Hope you like this one :)
