HermitBurpcast#07- The Artist's Way Through Art Anxiety featuring Kristy Prause

Featured "Sandwich?" Artwork & Podcast title credited to Kristy Prause (kristykate.com)! 
I scribbled all over her artwork muhahah ;)

Welcome! I am Leonie Yue and this is the monthly HermitBurpcast.

Special episode for those who are Creative! This might be of interest to even your friends - especially when struggle is a part of creating (aka growth is happening)! Share this post to support us and if you find this useful to your friends! Your help will be appreciated! :D

We discuss about Personal thoughts on an Art Recovery Course Book called "The Artist's Way" by Julia Cameron. Disclaimer that we are not paid for this in any way to talk about the book.

We  touch into: 
  • what blocks people from making Art, 
  • negative conditioning and beliefs towards Creativity, Paralysing Anxiety
  • negative beliefs and activity in the Art Community, 
  • Shame, Jealousy, Competition/Comparisons, 
  • Perfectionism, Workaholicism, Personal Growth, 
  • Having Friendships based upon trust and support, 
  • the Choice of Happiness and making Changes for yourself
  • and many more things we learned from the book and from our experiences.

Plus, first ever Guest episode with my good friend & art buddy, Kristy Prause! This episode features an interview conversation (with some sillyness of course) with her before we swim into an overview about Art Anxiety. Thanks so much for the fun awesome time Kristy! :D

Aside from the usual solo segments and audio editing I do, this is one of the mega long episodes in which took a lot of planning, commitment and preparation from both parties! It's super long because I'd rather not spread it into parts like I did with my Teaching Storytime and anyway, it's hard for people to remember what happened last month or three (well at least for me!) 

So take your time! I have time marked segments for your convenience in the shownotes below.

2015#10 You gotta be Squidding Me!! I'm a Mario Squid Kid? (& Musing about Self Questioning)

Leonie's small blog island says hullo! (:

Pfffft at the title haha. But I have been playing Splatoon quite a bit! ;) 

Anyhooberhow. It's been 3 weeks. And my posts are now 10am AEST! :D 

This update is all about what happened in the past month though! 
Hope you've been having a good July so far. 

    Let's go crazy! Journal Time.

    Hey it's me as a silly awkward Mario Squid Girl!
    Relax; I don't have tentacles (haha oh nooo) but I actually do have the Mario side of the costume as it was my improved cosplay from last year at PAXAus. Buuut I don't think I wore it long enough for it to be seen (it was more suited to winter; it was so hot! How do people do this?! They are incredibly dedicated!) I'm keen to wear it again as a cosplay staple though! Or I'll actually try something more suited to the summer that resembles more like overalls. :D
    Speaking of Splatoon, I have reached the Max Level 20 cap and have become the Legendary Freshest Starrr haha
