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 week I talk about my first time floating in a float tank … one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever have. I recorded this one down the park, and just as I was finishing up, the episode got gate crashed by a bloke called Nick playing a guitar … so this one gets very random at the end :)
SVSLearn.com is the main topic for this weeks lil episode, as I talk about my experience studying with SVSLearn, the Society of Visual Storytelling. We also have the lil Art Tip, which is about creating Colour Palettes for Painting, the Book Book is Keys To Drawing by Bert Dodson, and the Fascinating Fact is about something called Distributed Practice, which drastically increases Knowledge Retention when learning. I also tell a lil story at the end about a Meditation that resulted in an Orgasm. Hope you like this one :)
This lil episode comes to you live from the astral planes lol I talk about Out Of Body Experiences on this one, and a theory I have where I wonder if the Earth is a school for us babies, created by the creator, with the ultimate goal of growing new creators; are we destined to be a Creator … aka, a God? There’s also the lil art tip, which this week is about how a craft knife can be used to fix inking errors. Hope you like this one :)
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 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.
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
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 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.
On this lil tiny episode, I talk about a strange experience I had last night while meditating with my eyes open for the first time. I saw something that sent shivers down my whole body … I saw the light bulb on my ceiling flash on and off. No idea what happened there, but it left me in a strange conflicting state of awe and argh … oh, and I also briefly talk about my time with clip studio paint pro, drawing on the Surface Pro 2 :)
