MORE EPISODES

30 – WHY DO AN ART CHALLENGE?

This weeks lil podcast is all about Art Challenges, and some of the reasons why I believe doing an Art Challenge could be one of the best tings you ever do … even if it does feel a lil bit scary at first :) We also have this weeks lil Art Tip, which is to not waste time focusing on the details, by remembering to ZOOM OUT while Drawing Digitally and STEPPING BACK while Drawing Traditionally :)

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 :)

36 – QUESTIONS OF CONFLICT

This weeks lil episode could be the last one before they put me in a Mental Asylum lol It starts out talking about how I think I need to go back to basics with my Art, before I bounce all over the place asking questions like: What are we Doing here? Are Introverts Aliens? What is Rest? Is the Subconscious an External Source? Are some Thoughts other Peoples Feelings? … I also talk about AI, Virtual Reality and Out of Body Experiences, as well as this weeks lil Art Tip, which is how to Grid a Pencil Drawing without putting any lines on your paper. This one is a lil all over the place, but hopefully you enjoy it :)

56 – INSECURITIES AND SELF ACCEPTANCE

‘Take off your Hat and Talk about your Hair’ was this weeks random topic, selected by new employee Dennis the Doggy lol This was a scary episode, where I show my bald patches on camera and talk about my Hair Insecurities and Self Acceptance; I almost didn’t release this one, through Fear of what people may say, but as I talk about on the episode … the only way to deal with Insecurities is to start talking about them, which will hopefully lead to Self Acceptance. Hope you find this one interesting.

25 – SPONTANEOUS A TO Z OF ART

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 :)

64 – PSYCHEDELICS AND LUCID DREAMING

‘ Talk About Psychedelics ‘ was this weeks random topic, and it ends up being a right trippy episode talking about, Lucid Dreaming, Mushrooms vs Technology and how Fear appears to be Controlling Society. I also wonder, Are Our Memories Really Dreams?, Are Mushrooms Creating Our Dreams?, and Are Psychedelics Bad, or have we been lied to? I also talk about Why Sketching in Crappy Sketchbooks is a good idea, a Lucid Dreaming Stabilisation Technique Steve Job and I Created within a Lucid Dream lol, how Lucid Dreaming is like a Fear Playground, and there’s a bit about the Fear of Success. Hope you enjoy :)

38 – THANK YOU SAUSAGES

This lil podcast’s about saying Thank You when things aren’t going so well, a new Fun 8 Minute Drawing Challenge I’ve found, and Sausages … this weeks lil Art Tip is actually a lil Sausage Tip :) There’s also the BOOK BOOK, which is a book called Feeling is the Secret, by Neville Goddard. Hope you like this sausage lol

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 :)

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?

75 – STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST BY AUSTIN KLEON BOOK REVIEW

What a Beauty this lil Art Book is! I love it, I have a feeling in years to come, Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon, will go down as one of my all time favourite art books … it’s So Simple, yet So Inspiring. For such a lil Art Book, it packs in so much wisdom; Every single page is full of Juicy Creative Goodness. Hope you have fun with this one :)
