Ka-BOOM! In this one I brain dump about me lil website that broke last week, and some of my feelings and Learnings from the experience.
Sadness, Disbelief, Confusion … followed by a sense of Liberation and Excitement!
It’s been Fascinating, Tings happen in mysterious ways, but I’ve learnt that the Universe always knows best.
I will most likely talk a bit more about this on next weeks episode, as stuff has changed since recording this one, but in this episode I also talk about
how Negative Experiences can end up becoming the Best Thing That Ever Happened to You,
and a Theory where I think we’re all existing on Multiple Timelines at the same time.
Hope you like this one :)
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.
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 :)
The So Free Art Podcast is heading in a new direction, where it will be more Art and Tings, less Tings and Art :) This episode’s about Focus, Discipline, Studying, Embracing Fears, Awareness, and Internal Burps lol Moving forward each episode will look at Courses, Art Books and Articles I’ve studied that week, and in the process it may allow me to Learn that I haven’t Learnt what I’m Learning :) Lucid Dreaming and stuff will still be on the show, but they’ll be squeezed into a single episode called ‘About The Tings’ every 8 weeks or so, allowing for a more focused podcast. I also give details about how you can win the Sketch with Asia Art Book, and lil Dennis has some friends show up! Hope you enjoy this one, and like the new direction.
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 :)
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 :)
Get outside with Nature, the voice in my head kept saying, so I did, and I took lil Dennis with me to record this podcast while walking through the woods of Saltrum, before doing a spot of Sunbathing :) It ends up being a discussion about Doing Too Much Stuff, how Nature helps in Finding Balance, and there’s a lot about Facing Fears. I tell a story about these pink sunglasses I started wearing in 2015 that changed my life, by helping me overcome some of my biggest fears. Fear seems to be the recurring topic this week, because I also tell how I went Wild Camping last weekend, and ended up walking 12 miles through the creepy woods in the dead of night. I also reveal how You Can Win some Art Books, woohoo. This is a bit of a different podcast than usual, but I hope you have fun with it :)
From Arsonist to Artist, this one’s all about Change … ‘ Read one of your Blog Posts ‘ was this weeks lil topic, until I decided naa, can’t be bothered lol and pulled out another one … ‘ Talk About Change ‘ is what came up, and it ends up being a very random episode where I Break the Rules, Nearly Set Fire to lil Dennis and talk about how I used to be an Arsonist but changed into an Artist :) I discuss how Drawing is like life, in that it’s constantly changing, and share another Lucid Dream, and a bit about this odd experiment which will make you question reality. Hope you enjoy this explosive episode :)
Dennis had a week off this week, so instead of a random topic, I talk about Haters. Why do Haters Hate? It’s a nice lil discussion that comes full circle at the end, when I start talking about Lucid Dreaming and how you can use them to start facing your fears. 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. As always, hope you enjoy it :)
‘Talk About Sacrifice’ was this weeks lil topic, not the human kind, but the every day sort of sacrifice :) It ends up going all over the place talking about the Struggles of Pursuing a Passion, while still getting the Bills Paid, what tings you Should and Shouldn’t be Sacrificing, how Transitioning is maybe a Distraction, and how sometimes I feel like Life before Art was so much Simpler… hope you find it interesting :)
