84 – BURNING MY 20,000 GESTURE DRAWINGS

The Drawing exercise Gesture Drawing and Letting Go of Art are the main topics for this one, as I attempt to burn my 20,000 Gesture Drawings; Five years worth of Gesture Drawing go up in smoke, or do they? Dun dun dun lol

I cover a lot of tings on this one,

Gesture Drawing resources – QuickPoses and Croquis Cafe,
Traditional vs Digital,
The KOH-I-NOOR Clutch Pencil with Magic Coloured Leads,
Proko’s Figure Drawing Course,
Practicing Bad Habits,
Should you start your Gestures with the Head?,
Facing Fears,
and How the Mind is a Nobhead!

You’ll hear Fireworks exploding in the background at times, as I recorded this one spur of the moment on Halloween night, KA-BOOM! Think it adds a bit of ambiance to the episode :)

I had an aha! Moment during this one … I realised Gesture Drawing isn’t about collecting your Drawings, it’s about showing up to do the Drawing Exercise.

*sniff sniff*

Can you smell burning? I know I can lol

Hope you have fun with this one :)

82 – HOW IMPORTANT IS HAVING A WILLY OR A FANNY?

This About The Tings episode see me talking about Willys and Fannys, or Cocks and Pussys lol

I talk about how different words for the same ting, have different Feelings about them, and ask the question, How important is having a Willy or a Fanny?

This Brain Dump episode goes all over the place, but by the end I realise that sometimes you need to go through an Experience, in order to realise you didn’t actually have to; it’s funny, kind of like a Paradox :)

I also talk about

Meditating,
Lucid Dreaming,
Dream Interpretation,
The Importance of Words,
Mindgames,
GRS Surgery,
Letting Go,
and Mooji

Hope you enjoy dis one :)

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 :)

56 – INSECURITIES AND SELF ACCEPTANCE

‘Take off your Hat and Talk about your Hair’ was this weeks random topic, selected by new employee Dennis the Doggy lol This was a scary episode, where I show my bald patches on camera and talk about my Hair Insecurities and Self Acceptance; I almost didn’t release this one, through Fear of what people may say, but as I talk about on the episode … the only way to deal with Insecurities is to start talking about them, which will hopefully lead to Self Acceptance. Hope you find this one interesting.
