MORE EPISODES

17 – SKETCHING PEOPLE IN PUBLIC

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 :)

28 – SLEEP IS KEY

This lil episode is for us sleepyheads out there :) Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I had to sacrifice my sleep this week … not cool. It’s been interesting though, seeing how sleep is key to everything. This weeks lil Art Tip is more of a mental one, about how never to assume when learning anything to do with Art, and that’s pretty much it for this one. Hope you like it, I’m gonna to go sleep now :)

45 – HOLOTROPIC BREATHWORK EXPERIENCES AND VISIONS

This one’s a lil bit different and more about the tings, as I share a Holotropic Breathwork experience, which leads into: Ancient Civilisations, Aliens, Time Travel and Remote Viewing the War in Heaven … fascinating stuff. I highly recommend trying out Holotropic Breathwork for yourself. The Fascinating Fact is related, as it’s to do with Breathing, the lil Art Tip is all about the colour of your art tools and the Book Book is one of my favourites, Sophie’s World. As always, hope you like this one :)

5 – HOW TO OVERCOME SELF DOUBT … IT’S ALL MENTAL

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.

37 – GESTURE DRAWING

This lil one’s all about Gesture Drawing; I talk about why it’s my most fun drawing exercise, how online resources QuickPoses.com and Croquis Cafe can help improve your Gesture Drawing skills, and there’s this weeks lil Art Tip, which is Gesture Drawing related. We also have a new feature this week in Book Book Time :) where I’ll be looking at a different book each episode, and this weeks Book Book changed my life, it’s Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind And Create A New One, by Dr Joe Dispenza. Hope you like this one :)

48 – AUTOMATIC DRAWING

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.

40 – INTERPRETING DREAMS WITH AUTOMATIC WRITING

This weeks lil episode is more about the tings, as I talk about Interpreting Dreams with Automatic Writing. There’s also the Book Book, which is Understanding Dreams by Keith Hearne and David Melbourne, and for a bit of arty tings, we have the lil Art Tip, which is a super easy way to create the effect of squinting when working digitally. Hope you like this one :)

10 – LUCID DREAMING, WITH lilSOPHIE

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 :)

35 – ARE VIDEOGAMES BAD FOR YOU?

In this weeks lil episode, I ask the question, Are Videogames Bad For You? You can replace Videogames with any hobby really, as I think it all comes down to finding balance and your beliefs. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about Taking Your Time when Drawing Realistic Hair, and there’s a slice of Lucid Dreaming talk too: False Awakenings and how Lucid Dreaming is improving my Waking Life. Hope you like it :)

3 – BEST DRAWING PENCILS FOR GESTURE, SKETCHING AND REALISTIC PENCIL DRAWING
