This lil podcast is about a couple main topics: Saying Thank You When Things Aren’t Going So Well, and a new 8 Minute Drawing Challenge I’ve found, which is both FUN and FUNNY; here’s a photo of the Bob the Builder drawings I spoke about on the episode, where by the end of the challenge he becomes Blob the Builder lol
There’s also the BOOK BOOK, which is a beautiful book called Feeling is the Secret, by Neville Goddard, and than there’s a section on Sausages …
lil SAUSAGE TIP TIME
A KNEADED ERASER CAN BE TURNED INTO A SAUSAGE TO HELP LIGHTLY REMOVE PENCIL FROM YOUR PAPER
If you take a Kneaded Eraser and roll it up into a sausage shape, you can than gently roll it over your paper, and it will lightly remove pencil from the paper. Really handy when your drawing becomes a bit of a mess with grid / perspective lines all over the place :)
BOOK BOOK 2: Feeling is the Secret, by Neville Goddard
Each week I take a look at a book, and this weeks BOOK BOOK is a beautiful lil book called, Feeling is the Secret, by Neville Goddard. It really is a tiny book; you can finish it in about an hour, but every page is full of wisdom.
I adore this book, it’s all about the Connection between the Conscious and Subconscious, and how gaining control of your feelings, will allow you to gain control of your world :)
If you have any tips or questions about saying Thank You, this weeks lil Sausage Tip, the Book Book, any of the Topics on this episode, or any questions/topics you’d like discussed on future episodes, please get in touch.

” EVERYTHING CHANGES, WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS. “
– Sophie Lawson
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 :)
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 :)
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.
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 all about copying other artists work, not the naughty kind of copying, but the drawing exercise that’s a fun way to play and learn at the same time :) We also have a new ‘lil art tips’ feature joining the podcast this week, woohoo lol
This lil episode covers a lot of topics, but mainly it’s about my early experience of using Lucid Dreaming to help heal from Child Abuse … I also talk about Virtual Reality with PSVR, are Videogames bad for you?, a Reiki Healing ‘Healing crisis’, Following Your Bliss, Genital Reassignment Surgery and how I think from time to time we all have to stop and ask ourselves … What do I really want From Life?
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 :)
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.
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 :)
This weeks lil episode could be the last one before they put me in a Mental Asylum lol It starts out talking about how I think I need to go back to basics with my Art, before I bounce all over the place asking questions like: What are we Doing here? Are Introverts Aliens? What is Rest? Is the Subconscious an External Source? Are some Thoughts other Peoples Feelings? … I also talk about AI, Virtual Reality and Out of Body Experiences, as well as this weeks lil Art Tip, which is how to Grid a Pencil Drawing without putting any lines on your paper. This one is a lil all over the place, but hopefully you enjoy it :)
