This is a really tough topic for me, and it scares me a bit, because I have so much I want to share about my Transgender journey, about spiritual things like Lucid Dreaming and so many photos I want to add to the Transitioning section, but I can’t do everything.
We only have so much time, and time spent doing other things, is time not spent Focusing on One Passion.
Thing is, I know there’s a sweet spot, a place where I can focus on my Art, while still allowing myself to do the other things, just not feeling like I have to do all them to the same level of focus.
Enter lilSOPHIE, who I believe could be like a loophole that will allow me to focus on my Art, while finding balance by still being able to cover my Transgender tings and Spiritual stuff within her art.
lil ART TIP TIME
KEEP YOUR OLD DRAWINGS … There’s so many reasons why it’s worth hanging onto your old drawings:
They can act as inspiration and motivation in the future, Help Improve your Mindset while Drawing by showing that Your Mind Lies To You, and they even have this fun Nostalgic quality about them.
Keeping Your Old Drawings is something I highly recommend doing … especially the drawings you think are the worst :)
Hope you like this one.

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 :)
On this lil episode, I start by sharing an embarrassing story, before jumping into the main topic of the drawing exercise Automatic Drawing. I also revisit a book I read in 2017 called Feel The Fear and Do It Away, by Susan Jeffers, talk about the subconscious and how 95% of the time we don’t even know we’re doing, and finally … the lil art tip looks at the benefits of taking a break :) Hope you like this one.
A few days ago I had my first Lucid Dream … since than, my mind’s gone deep into the Lucid Dreaming Rabbit Hole. I’ve started asking myself: Is it possible to Manifest a Painting while Dreaming, than create it for real when you Wake up? Sounds Bonkers, but turns out there’s proof it can be done :)
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 :)
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 :)
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.
In this lil episode, I share a theory that’s been on my mind for about a year now … has our Reality been Sabotaged? Are we inside a Virtual Reality? Is God really the Devil? I also talk about Remote Viewing, Precognitive Dreams and a few other tings. Hope you find this one interesting :)
This lil one’s all about finding Focus and Balance by Waking Up Early, something I’ve just started doing, and so far, so good … it almost feels like I’ve magically created extra hours in the day :) I also talk about a couple Lucid Dreams and the lil art tip of the week is to do with pencil cases :)
This lil episode’s all about planning, something I’ve been doing a lot of lately with my Passion Planner and Wunderlist App. I talk about some of the stuff that seems to be working, and tings that aren’t going quite according to plan. There’s also a new feature this episode, called the Fascinating Fact … where I share a fascinating fact about something to do with Art, Spirituality, Transitioning and Stuff like that. Hope you like this one :)
This lil podcast’s about saying Thank You when things aren’t going so well, a new Fun 8 Minute Drawing Challenge I’ve found, and Sausages … this weeks lil Art Tip is actually a lil Sausage Tip :) There’s also the BOOK BOOK, which is a book called Feeling is the Secret, by Neville Goddard. Hope you like this sausage lol
