This lil Piggy went to Market, and ended up becoming Addicted to Buying Tings … Overcoming 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!
During the episode I talk about how I’ve Observed the Addiction feeling moving from thing to thing, so I suspect there must be an underlying Issue that needs addressing.
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 :)

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 :)
Death. On this one I talk about Why I think it’s good to think about Death from Time to Time, How it can Help You Appreciate People in your Life 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 Dead already?, What Happens during the Death Process? and Are Dreams Linked to the Death Realm? 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.
Being with Nature Creates Memorable Experiences, and on this podcast, I talk about a few of the recent ones I’ve had Studying Creatures while Urban Sketching. Some of the tings I talk about include, How I’ve started to Fall in Love with the Simple Shapes of Boats, How Nature creates Perfect Shapes, and questions like, Would a Butterfly by Beautiful without Wings?, Why do we Find Spiders Scary?, Do Seagulls have Telepathic Abilities?, What’s life like for a Snail?, and Do Dragonflies look like Helicopters or do Helicopters look like Dragonflies? Studying Creatures is Super Fun, hope you find this Podcast Fun too :)
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 :)
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 :)
This week I talk about my first time floating in a float tank … one of the strangest experiences I’ve ever have. I recorded this one down the park, and just as I was finishing up, the episode got gate crashed by a bloke called Nick playing a guitar … so this one gets very random at the end :)
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 :)
Boo :) Time for another episode … this one was recorded down the park, and it’s storytime :) I share a short story I wrote the other night in bed, and a theory I’ve been thinking about to do with consciousness, death and how we could all be blobs of paint on a canvas :)
This lil episode comes to you live from the astral planes lol I talk about Out Of Body Experiences on this one, and a theory I have where I wonder if the Earth is a school for us babies, created by the creator, with the ultimate goal of growing new creators; are we destined to be a Creator … aka, a God? There’s also the lil art tip, which this week is about how a craft knife can be used to fix inking errors. Hope you like this one :)
