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 weeks lil podcast is all about Trees; I think everyone should get themselves a little tree friend, they’re like a pack of smarties … they always have the answers :) I talk about my wise Tree Friend, Lucid Dreaming and do a bit of sketching outside at Saltrum, before my lead runs out.
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 :)
Drawing Erasers are not just for erasing mistakes, they can be just as much a drawing tool as a pencil :) Join me for episode Four of the So Free Art Podcast, where I talk about my Best Drawing Erasers for Realistic Pencil Drawing. Including my favourite: Plastic Eraser, Kneaded Eraser, Battery Operated Eraser and the Tombow Mono Zero Eraser Pen :)
What are the Best Drawing Pencils for Gesture Drawing? Sketching? or Realistic Pencil Drawing? No idea lol but join me for episode Three of the So Free Art Podcast, to find what my personal favourite Drawing Pencils are, and why I prefer using Mechanical / Clutch pencils over traditional wooden pencils :)
On this episode I talk about Self Awareness and Art … Learning how to Draw is all about Self Awareness, such as being aware of Negative Spaces, but it doesn’t have to stop with the Art. This same Self Awareness can be used to start tackling mental issues like OCD, Social Anxiety and even heal suppressed emotional situations from our life. Art is powerful, it always seems to lead to Self Awareness, which seems key to self healing.
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.
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 :)
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 :)
On this episode I dive into the topic of Spirituality … Automatic Writing is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with, what I like to call, the Universe. It’s life changing stuff, because in just two weeks I’ve managed to go from being scared of transitioning at the day job, to not only throwing away all my male clothes and being my true self at work, but also wearing a little swimsuit in public, and facing the fear of learning how to swim … I’m beginning to see a deep connection between Art and Spirituality.
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 :)
