85 – ART SOUNDOFF : ART JOURNALING MICRO PODCAST CHALLENGE

This one’s about the Art Soundoff Challenge, which is an Art Journaling Micro Podcast Challenge run by the Lean into Art Podcast.

I decided to try and do all 30 prompts in one sitting, with only 30 seconds to Journal each one; I really enjoyed this episode.

My Sister’s away on holiday at the moment, and I’m dog sitting, so you may hear random noises and stuff…I didn’t have my microphone, so recorded it using the camcorders built in microphone.

Hopefully it’s good enough, but lots of stuff was covered on this one, like: Art Tools, Awareness, Journaling, Mooji, Videogames, and we have a return of the Negative Thoughts.

If you’re watching on YouTube, you’ll even get to see lil Dennis meeting a real dog for the first time too :)

Hope you like it.

…ohh, and I also bring up the topic of Negative Thoughts, because during the episode a lil Demon creeps into my head and starts trying to put me off by saying Negative Stuff.

66 – 30 DAY ART CHALLENGE – WHAT I LEARNT FROM CATS OF JUNE

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 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 :)

Dennis had a week off this week, so instead of a random topic, I talk about Haters. Why do Haters Hate?

I also share a fun way of turning Haters into something positive, that I’m calling the Ice Cream Haters 10, and there’s a lil bit about a new Art Challenge called the Cats of June 2019.
