52 – ITERATING IN PUBLIC : A NEW FORMAT FOR THE SHOW

This one’s about Iterating in Public, and how I’m going to try a new format for the show. I also talk a lil about my time at a recent Life Drawing class with the amazing Ian Barlow, and a few other bits and bobs. Hope you enjoy it :)

7 – AUTOMATIC WRITING, SWIMMING, AND THE ART OF SPIRITUALITY

On this episode I dive into the topic of Spirituality … Automatic Writing is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with, what I like to call, the Universe. It’s life changing stuff, because in just two weeks I’ve managed to go from being scared of transitioning at the day job, to not only throwing away all my male clothes and being my true self at work, but also wearing a little swimsuit in public, and facing the fear of learning how to swim … I’m beginning to see a deep connection between Art and Spirituality.

67 – LUCID DREAMING : SOME OF MY RECENT LUCID DREAM EXPERIENCES

This one’s about the Lucid Dreaming, and some of my recent Lucid Dream Experiences. Including: a Self Aware Taxi Driver who drove me into a Previous Dream, moving stone blocks with my Mind, becoming a Ghost in another Reality, getting Distracted by Naked Breasts, and a house I couldn’t Escape from, resulting in a string of False Awakenings … there’s even a lil story about a Purring cat who was sat on my bed. Hope you enjoy this one, Sweet Dreams :)

17 – SKETCHING PEOPLE IN PUBLIC

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 :)

23 – KEYS TO DRAWING WITH IMAGINATION, BY BERT DODSON

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 :)

9 – FINDING FOCUS

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 :)

39 – SOCIAL MEDIA AS AN ARTIST

This weeks lil episode is another one of those brain dump ones, this time, about Social Media. I talk about how Social Media is both good and bad, Curating content and the struggles of Focusing. There’s also the lil Art Tip, which is about Sharpening Pencils, the Book Book, which is a beautiful lil art book called Momentary, The Art of Ilya Kuvshinov … plus there’s a bit of Lucid Dreaming at the end too :) Hope you like this one.

10 – LUCID DREAMING, WITH lilSOPHIE

On this episode I talk about Lucid Dreaming again … Lucid Dreaming and Art seems like it could be a powerful combination. I had a crazy idea of trying to meet lilSOPHIE, one of my custom characters, inside of a lucid dream. I talk about my first attempt on this episode … I think it might be possible, having already experienced holding her lil hands :) I talk about some of the fun things I’d love for us to do together, like Posing, Sketching, listening to her lil Stories and getting to know who lilSOPHIE really is, so I can pop back into reality and bring her to life :)

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 :)
