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 :)

This ‘About The Tings’ episode is about the Lucid Dreaming, and some of My Recent Lucid Dream Experiences. Including such Lucid Dreams as: The Shopping Trolley of Death, Whose in the Mirror?, G-Forces, Battlecat, Look into the Eyes, Dream Healing, and Get Me Out of Here! … I finish it all off talking about the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Hope you enjoy this one, Sweet Dreams :)
On this lil episode I talk about minimalism … how getting rid of all my tings and having more space, appears to bring with it a feeling of peace, and hopefully in time, an increase in balance and focus :)
On this episode I talk about Thoughts … where do thoughts come from? How comes while I’m drawing thoughts sometimes try to put me off? How comes thoughts have the power to either negatively or positively impact reality? .., I have a theory that thoughts could be linked to the Delayed Choice Quantum Eraser Experiment, this one’s a bit bonkers :)

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 not only were quite a few people were out walking their lil doggies which makes for some fun social moments, but I found a lil pebble which said “You Are Enough” … which is fitting for this episode, as I had all my camera settings wrong, so it’s not the prettiest episode to watch, but I hope you like it :)
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 :)
‘ 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 :)
What’s it like to not eat anything for over 2 days? Time to find out, as I record my thoughts during a 48 hour fast. This was something I’ve wanted to try for ages, but it ended up being totally different to what I expected. I also talk about Realistic Pencil blending with Tortillions, Dreams, The Twits by Roald Dahl, and I share a tasty Hot Chocolate tip you won’t want to miss lol Hope you like this belly rumbling episode :)
This lil one’s all about Gesture Drawing; I talk about why it’s my most fun drawing exercise, how online resources QuickPoses.com and Croquis Cafe can help improve your Gesture Drawing skills, and there’s this weeks lil Art Tip, which is Gesture Drawing related. We also have a new feature this week in Book Book Time :) where I’ll be looking at a different book each episode, and this weeks Book Book changed my life, it’s Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind And Create A New One, by Dr Joe Dispenza. Hope you like this one :)
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.
This lil Piggy went to Market, and ended up becoming Addicted to Buying Tings … Addiction, that’s the topic of this weeks episode. I talk about being Addicted to Buying Videogames, being Addicted to Buying Art Books, being Addicted to Buying Dresses and Shoes, but, how I’m Overcoming Addiction with the help of Awareness and Saying NO! My conclusion though? I think You can have your Cake and Eat It, you just Can’t Eat It All At Once … have a lil Slice Now and Again :)I also talk about Limiting Beliefs, Affirmations, Automatic Writing, and a bit random, but at the very end, the Board Game Arkham Horror :) Hope you find this one interesting.
