72 – BOOK REVIEW – LUCID DREAMING: GATEWAY TO THE INNER SELF, BY ROBERT WAGGONER

For this weeks episode, I takes a look at the book Lucid Dreaming : Gateway to the Inner Self, by Robert Waggoner. It’s a book I recently finished, and found to be a very fascinating deep dive into the world of Lucid Dreaming. I also talk about this cat that keeps jumping in the window bringing me dead mice and birds, a Dream where I’m sure I Saw the Spirit of a Dead Bird pass over, and there’s a bit about Automatic Writing too. Hope you enjoy :)

10 – LUCID DREAMING, WITH lilSOPHIE

On this episode I talk about Lucid Dreaming again … Lucid Dreaming and Art seems like it could be a powerful combination. I had a crazy idea of trying to meet lilSOPHIE, one of my custom characters, inside of a lucid dream. I talk about my first attempt on this episode … I think it might be possible, having already experienced holding her lil hands :) I talk about some of the fun things I’d love for us to do together, like Posing, Sketching, listening to her lil Stories and getting to know who lilSOPHIE really is, so I can pop back into reality and bring her to life :)

76 – SHOW YOUR WORK BY AUSTIN KLEON BOOK REVIEW

Another Beautfully Inspiring lil Art Book, this one’s Show Your Work by Austin Kleon! Just like last weeks book, Steal Like An Artist also by Austin Kleon, I’m thinking this is going into my list of my all time favourite art books … Super Fun and Inspiring it is. The bright yellow cover’s sexy too :) But the thing is, I’ve always struggled with sharing my stuff on social media for various reasons, and this book’s already helping me. I’m going to reread this one many times I think, because it’s full of so much practical knowledge. Hope you have fun with this one :)

39 – SOCIAL MEDIA AS AN ARTIST

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.

14 – TREE FRIEND

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.

5 – HOW TO OVERCOME SELF DOUBT … IT’S ALL MENTAL

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.

17 – SKETCHING PEOPLE IN PUBLIC

It’s that time of year again … when the sun comes out to play, so do the drawing pencils :) It’s time to start sketching people in public, something I was terrified to do at first, but it’s one of the most fun ways to improve, and loosen up, both your drawing, and the mind :)

55 – THE STRUGGLES OF TRYING TO FOCUS AND CURATE AN INSTAGRAM FEED

‘What are you currently Struggling with?’, is this weeks random topic … and it ends up being an episode about the Struggles of trying to Curate and Focus an Instagram feed: How do you decide what to focus on, when multiple Passions seem right? Do you even need to curate an Instagram Feed? Why is Focus so bleeding hard? lol This one’s a bit like being a pinball bouncing around inside my brain as I try to work out what to do. Hope you like this one :)

32 – INKTOBER: WHAT I’VE LEARNT SO FAR

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 :)

40 – INTERPRETING DREAMS WITH AUTOMATIC WRITING

This weeks lil episode is more about the tings, as I talk about Interpreting Dreams with Automatic Writing. There’s also the Book Book, which is Understanding Dreams by Keith Hearne and David Melbourne, and for a bit of arty tings, we have the lil Art Tip, which is a super easy way to create the effect of squinting when working digitally. Hope you like this one :)
