I think this is the most out there lil episode I’ve done so far lol This weeks podcast was supposed to be about the art challenge Inktober, which starts tomorrow, but that all changed after a Lucid Dream I had this morning.
Something that’s always bothered me, is Why are some people born Transgender? I came up with a theory this morning after a False Awakening, which is where you have a dream that you wake up from a dream and get out of bed, only to realise that you’re actually still dreaming; a Dream within a Dream.
It only lasted a few seconds, but I couldn’t stop thinking about it all morning and it made me wonder, What if we’re inside of a Dream right now, What if we each have a Creator whose fast asleep in their own lil bed dreaming us into existence as we speak lol… and What if that’s got something to do with our Gender, and Why some people are born Transgender.
So this weeks podcast is all about a Theory I have of how Lucid Dreaming and Gender may be Linked. I also talk about another Lucid Dream I had last week, and also these weird worm hole vivid visual things that I have no clue what they are, but they fascinate me so much.
So this one’s mostly about the tings this week, but there is a bit of Art on the show, like a bonus lil Art Challenge I set for you, of going into your local art shop during the week and Picking up a Random Art Tool You’ve Never Used Before, so you can go home and have some fun playing and experimenting with it :) which links in nicely with…
lil ART TIP TIME
ALWAYS TRY NEW THINGS … or tings :)
With Inktober starting tomorrow, I’ve been playing around with some new Art Tools, and it made me realise. It’s really important to try new tings, because iwhen you do, that’s when you have the most fun, because you don’t know what you’re doing lol so you can just Play and Experiment :)
Hope you like this one.

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 :)
On this lil episode I talk about minimalism … how getting rid of all my tings and having more space, appears to bring with it a feeling of peace, and hopefully in time, an increase in balance and focus :)
This weeks lil episode is another one of those brain dump ones, this time, about Social Media. I talk about how Social Media is both good and bad, Curating content and the struggles of Focusing. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about Sharpening Pencils, the Book Book, which is a beautiful lil art book called Momentary, The Art of Ilya Kuvshinov … plus there’s a bit of Lucid Dreaming at the end too :) 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.
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 :)
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 :)
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.
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 :)
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.
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 :)
