This weeks random topic was …
As you can see from Dennis the Doggy holding a lil Pebble we found, there wasn’t one this week.
Inking, Sketching, Watercolouring and Digital Painting; I talk about all the tings I learnt from the Cats of June 30 Day Art Challenge.
There was so much, like
- how Confidence really shows in your Lines when Inking,
- how Digital Painting leaves me Exhausted,
- and how Sketching is a great way to Study other Artists work.
I recorded this one down Saltrum, the local woods, and quite a few people were out walking their lil doggies which makes for some Fun Social Moments :)
Sadly, I had all my camera settings wrong though, so it’s not the prettiest episode to watch, but I guess it’s enough :)
Hope you like it :)

” WHEN YOU FOCUS ON YOUR GOAL, YOU ATTRACT YOUR GOAL
WHEN YOU FOCUS ON FEARS, YOU ATTRACT YOUR FEARS
IN A MENTAL SPACE, YOUR FOCUS MATTERS BECAUSE IT NATURALLY DRAWS YOU TO THE AREA OF YOUR FOCUS “
– Robert Waggoner
This be the first of the new format, where I have 15 minutes to talk about a random topic :) The subject for this episode was … ‘Talk About My SVSLearn Creative Composition Study Notes’; it ends up mostly being about: The Importance of Thumbnails, How Nature Uses Fractals to Create Tings, and How Designing is just as much Fun As Drawing :) Hope you like it.
‘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 :)
‘You Don’t Need Social Media’ was this weeks lil topic, and I came away from this one thinking, Social Media is a Paradox, because as an Artist … you don’t need it, but you also do need it. Or do you? Maybe you only Feel like you need it? It’s fascinating, but it seems to be about finding balance so that Social Media supports your Art Adventure, instead of becoming the Journey. Hope you enjoy this one.
Drawing Erasers are not just for erasing mistakes, they can be just as much a drawing tool as a pencil :) Join me for episode Four of the So Free Art Podcast, where I talk about my Best Drawing Erasers for Realistic Pencil Drawing. Including my favourite: Plastic Eraser, Kneaded Eraser, Battery Operated Eraser and the Tombow Mono Zero Eraser Pen :)
On this episode I talk about Finding Focus … or at least I try to, it’s funny, this podcast is about focus, yet it’s the most unfocused one I’ve done yet lol Thoughts are everywhere, but hopefully you can find some bits of wisdom in here somewhere. I’m more talking to myself during this episode, about how I’m struggling to focus on my Art at the moment, ways I’m trying to create new habits and a little bit about discipline, plus there’s a bit of spirituality thrown in for good measure too; this is weird one :)
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 :)
‘Talk about your Families Reaction to you being Transgender’ was this weeks random topic. I talk about my experience of Coming Out As Transgender with my Mum, Dad, Niece, Nephew, and Sister; even ringing my Sister up at the end to talk about how she feels about me being Transgender. Hope you like this one :)
What’s the Best Drawing Paper for Gesture Drawing? Sketching? and Realistic Pencil Drawing? Join me for episode One of the So Free Art Podcast, to find out :)
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 :)
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 :)
