Inking, Sketching, Watercolouring and Digital Painting; I talk about all the tings I learnt from the Cats of June 30 Day Art Challenge. There was so much, like how Confidence really shows in your Lines when Inking, how Digital Painting leaves me Exhausted, and how Sketching is a great way to Study other Artists work. I recorded this one down Saltrum, the local woods, and not only were quite a few people were out walking their lil doggies which makes for some fun social moments, but I found a lil pebble which said “You Are Enough” … which is fitting for this episode, as I had all my camera settings wrong, so it’s not the prettiest episode to watch, but I hope you like it :)
This lil episode’s more like a therapy session about my struggles of finding balance between work and play. I talk about sacrificing Videogames, how the Discipline of saying no to chocolate bars is helping me say NO to bigger temptations, and how you need to work out what to stop completely vs cut down on; this ones all about Finding Balance … oh, and I also share another healing Lucid Dream I experienced during the week :)
‘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.
Dennis had a week off this week, so instead of a random topic, I talk about Haters. Why do Haters Hate? It’s a nice lil discussion that comes full circle at the end, when I start talking about Lucid Dreaming and how you can use them to start facing your fears. I also share a fun way of turning Haters into something positive, that I’m calling the Ice Cream Haters 10, and there’s a lil bit about a new Art Challenge called the Cats of June 2019. As always, hope you enjoy it :)
Boo :) Time for another episode … this one was recorded down the park, and it’s storytime :) I share a short story I wrote the other night in bed, and a theory I’ve been thinking about to do with consciousness, death and how we could all be blobs of paint on a canvas :)
This lil episode is one of them brain dump ones, where I just talk about tings currently on my mind, like: Dealing with Burnout, Finding Balance, Playing Videogames, the link between Spirituality and Art, Meditation, Dreaming, Social Anxiety … I also talk about a couple of books, one called Discover Your Psychic Powers by Tara Ward and another called Daily Rituals by Mason Curry. Hope you like this one :)
From Arsonist to Artist, this one’s all about Change … ‘ Read one of your Blog Posts ‘ was this weeks lil topic, until I decided naa, can’t be bothered lol and pulled out another one … ‘ Talk About Change ‘ is what came up, and it ends up being a very random episode where I Break the Rules, Nearly Set Fire to lil Dennis and talk about how I used to be an Arsonist but changed into an Artist :) I discuss how Drawing is like life, in that it’s constantly changing, and share another Lucid Dream, and a bit about this odd experiment which will make you question reality. Hope you enjoy this explosive episode :)
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.
This one’s about Iterating in Public, and how I’m going to try a new format for the show. I also talk a lil about my time at a recent Life Drawing class with the amazing Ian Barlow, and a few other bits and bobs. Hope you enjoy it :)
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 :)
