This weeks random topic was …
Dennis the Doggy is Dead!
lol, no, he’s just resting his eyes, but as you can see, he had another easy week and didn’t do much … apart from singing at the very end :)
Instead, I spend the episode Thinking About Death.
- Why I think It’s Good To Think About Death from Time to Time,
- How it can Help You Appreciate People More,
- How it can Help You Face Fears, Achieve Goals and Lead to you becoming a Better Artist and Human Being.
I also ask
- Are We Already Dead?,
- What Happens during The Death Process?,
- and Are Dreams Linked to the Death Realm?
Hope you like this one :)

” LEARN TO DIE AND THOU SHALT LEARN TO LIVE, FOR THERE SHALL NONE LEARN TO LIVE THAT HATH NOT LEARNED TO DIE “
– The Book of the Craft of Dying (Comper’s Edition)
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.
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 :)
‘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 :)
This lil ones about the Lucid Dreaming Practice, some of the tings I’ve found helpful in becoming Lucid, and also, the struggles of dedicating to the Lucid Dreaming Practice, while still Producing and Studying Art. The Book Book is Journeys Out Of The Body, by Robert Monroe, the lil Art Tip is about the importance of Drawing What You Love and the Fascinating Fact is the Amount of Time we Spend Dreaming in a Lifetime. Hope you enjoy 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.
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 :)
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 :)
This lil episode is all about copying other artists work, not the naughty kind of copying, but the drawing exercise that’s a fun way to play and learn at the same time :) We also have a new ‘lil art tips’ feature joining the podcast this week, woohoo lol
What are Bogies? Just one of the questions I pose on this weeks episode, where I talk about Illness and tings like: How Lewis Hamilton having an illness inspired me, How even Monks get illness, The Universe is Always in Control, How we are Fragile Beings, I like Sneezing, You maybe Can’t Control illness, but you Can Control How You Respond to it. Being positive while being ill seems to come down to Awareness, everything seems to be about Awareness! Hope you enjoy this one :)
In this lil episode we take a peek inside the how to draw book, Keys to Drawing with Imagination, by Bert Dodson; an incredibly fun book, packed with tons of: sketches, exercises and wise words from the master that is, Bert Dodson :)
