MORE EPISODES

9 – FINDING FOCUS

On this episode I talk about Finding Focus … or at least I try to, it’s funny, this podcast is about focus, yet it’s the most unfocused one I’ve done yet lol Thoughts are everywhere, but hopefully you can find some bits of wisdom in here somewhere. I’m more talking to myself during this episode, about how I’m struggling to focus on my Art at the moment, ways I’m trying to create new habits and a little bit about discipline, plus there’s a bit of spirituality thrown in for good measure too; this is weird one :)

29 – FOCUSING ON ONE PASSION

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 :)

1 – BEST DRAWING PAPER FOR GESTURE, SKETCHING AND REALISTIC PENCIL DRAWING

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 :)

66 – 30 DAY ART CHALLENGE – WHAT I LEARNT FROM CATS OF JUNE

Inking, Sketching, Watercolouring and Digital Painting; I talk about all the tings I learnt from the Cats of June 30 Day Art Challenge. There was so much, like how Confidence really shows in your Lines when Inking, how Digital Painting leaves me Exhausted, and how Sketching is a great way to Study other Artists work. I recorded this one down Saltrum, the local woods, and not only were quite a few people were out walking their lil doggies which makes for some fun social moments, but I found a lil pebble which said “You Are Enough” … which is fitting for this episode, as I had all my camera settings wrong, so it’s not the prettiest episode to watch, but I hope you like it :)

19 – SOCIAL ANXIETY AND FEAR

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.

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

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 :)

41 – PODCASTING, GOALS AND LONELINESS

This is the first unedited podcast I’ve ever done … well, there was a 5 second clip I cut out when I burped lol but apart from that, this was all done in one take. You know what, it felt Liberating :) I talk about Podcasting, Goals and a lil bit about Loneliness. The book book is Journeys Out of the Body by Robert Monroe, and the lil Art Tip is how 30 minutes of practice before bed, can lead to big improvements over time. I hope you like this episode … one of my goals from now on, is to do all future podcasts live, with no editing :) Woohoo! Happy 2019 :)

16 – IMPERFECT WORK

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.

58 – SACRIFICE

‘Talk About Sacrifice’ was this weeks lil topic, not the human kind, but the every day sort of sacrifice :) It ends up going all over the place talking about the Struggles of Pursuing a Passion, while still getting the Bills Paid, what tings you Should and Shouldn’t be Sacrificing, how Transitioning is maybe a Distraction, and how sometimes I feel like Life before Art was so much Simpler… hope you find it interesting :)

27 – MAKING ART SHOULD BE FUN

This lil episode is about how Making Art should be Fun, and a time to Play. I realised something this week, I don’t enjoy realistic pencil drawings as much as I used to, which scared me at first until I realised, if you’re not having fun, stop doing it :) I also share another Lucid Dream experience, and this weeks lil Art Tip is about avoiding eye strain while Digitally Painting :)
