This lil one’s about the Lucid Dreaming Practice, some of the tings I’ve found Helpful in becoming Lucid and also, the Struggles of Dedicating to the Lucid Dreaming Practice, while still Producing and Studying Art.
Some of the Lucid Dream Practices I talk about are:
- 5 Minute Looking At Hands

From Arsonist to Artist, this one’s all about Change … ‘ Read one of your Blog Posts ‘ was this weeks lil topic, until I decided naa, can’t be bothered lol and pulled out another one … ‘ Talk About Change ‘ is what came up, and it ends up being a very random episode where I Break the Rules, Nearly Set Fire to lil Dennis and talk about how I used to be an Arsonist but changed into an Artist :) I discuss how Drawing is like life, in that it’s constantly changing, and share another Lucid Dream, and a bit about this odd experiment which will make you question reality. Hope you enjoy this explosive episode :)
This lil episode is all about Crap Drawings, well, part of it is … this is my Spontaneous A to Z of Art, where I run through the alphabet and say the first art related word that springs to mind and talk about it. We have C is for Crap Drawings, B is for Boring Exercises, O is for Orange and I is for Inspiration, at one point K was for King Kong lol this one gets a bit nutty at times :)
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.
‘Read One of your Laurels Gender Identity Clinic Visit Diary Entries’ was this weeks lil topic, and it turns into a discussion about Dealing with Deep Mental Issues, Social Anxiety, Ancient Civilisations, Do we have Multiple Spirits inside of us?, Are Animals Transgender? … this one goes all over the place, and me camera conks out half way, so there’s even some close up footage of the Moon if you watch the video version. Hope you like it :)
The So Free Art Podcast is heading in a new direction, where it will be more Art and Tings, less Tings and Art :) This episode’s about Focus, Discipline, Studying, Embracing Fears, Awareness, and Internal Burps lol Moving forward each episode will look at Courses, Art Books and Articles I’ve studied that week, and in the process it may allow me to Learn that I haven’t Learnt what I’m Learning :) Lucid Dreaming and stuff will still be on the show, but they’ll be squeezed into a single episode called ‘About The Tings’ every 8 weeks or so, allowing for a more focused podcast. I also give details about how you can win the Sketch with Asia Art Book, and lil Dennis has some friends show up! Hope you enjoy this one, and like the new direction.
This lil episode’s more like a therapy session about my struggles of finding balance between work and play. I talk about sacrificing Videogames, how the Discipline of saying no to chocolate bars is helping me say NO to bigger temptations, and how you need to work out what to stop completely vs cut down on; this ones all about Finding Balance … oh, and I also share another healing Lucid Dream I experienced during the week :)
‘Read one of your Blog Posts – 30 in 30 Painting Challenge’ was this weeks random topic, and it ends up being a talk about how Fun, Freeing and Messy Painting Is, How Art Challenges help make you more adaptable, confident and less of a Perfectionist, and how Writing while doing an Art Challenge is a good way to learn more about your art and yourself. Hope you like this one :)
In this lil episode, I share a theory that’s been on my mind for about a year now … has our Reality been Sabotaged? Are we inside a Virtual Reality? Is God really the Devil? I also talk about Remote Viewing, Precognitive Dreams and a few other tings. Hope you find this one interesting :)
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.
I think this is the most out there lil episode I’ve done so far lol Something that’s always bothered me, is Why are some people born Transgender? I came up with a Theory this morning after a Lucid Dream, and it made me wonder, What if we’re inside of a Dream right now, and what if that’s got something to do with why some people are born Transgender. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about the fun of trying new things … and there’s even a bonus lil Art Challenge for you to do this week too :) Woohoo!
