” THE FACULTY OF VOLUNTARILY BRINGING BACK A WANDERING ATTENTION OVER AND OVER AGAIN, IS THE VERY ROOT OF JUDGEMENT, CHARACTER AND WILL.

AN EDUCATION WHICH SHOULD IMPROVE THIS FACULTY WOULD BE THE EDUCATION PAR EXCELLENCE. BUT IT IS EASIER TO DEFINE THIS IDEAL THAN TO GIVE PRACTICAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR BRINGING IT ABOUT.

– William James

MORE EPISODES

35 – ARE VIDEOGAMES BAD FOR YOU?

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 :)

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 :)

20 – OVERWHELM

This lil episode is all about something I got hit with recently … Overwhelm. I talk about how I think I need videogames in my life for balance, how Transitioning takes up a lot of time, remembering why I started Drawing in the First place, Floatation Tanks, Swimming, Reiki Healing … I even talk about turning my Willy into a Fanny on this one lol

22 – SACRIFICE, DISCIPLINE AND FINDING BALANCE

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 :)

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 :)

6 – SELF-AWARENESS AND ART

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.

21 – VIRTUAL REALITY, HEALING AND LUCID DREAMING

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?

26 – WAKING UP EARLY

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 :)

42 – PLANNING WITH A PASSION PLANNER

This lil episode’s all about planning, something I’ve been doing a lot of lately with my Passion Planner and Wunderlist App. I talk about some of the stuff that seems to be working, and tings that aren’t going quite according to plan. There’s also a new feature this episode, called the Fascinating Fact … where I share a fascinating fact about something to do with Art, Spirituality, Transitioning and Stuff like that. Hope you like this one :)

44 – STUDYING WITH SVSLEARN

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 :)
