Wandering around the rabbit hole of YouTube one day brought me in touch with this dude whom I have come to admire and love. His videos are so creative, thought provoking, and real. I value authenticity and his originality, spirit, and heart shines through in all of his work.
#Struthless is deep thinker, goofball, philosopher, and genuine person.....I can't find anything not to love about his work.
He has great drawing advice and showcases his work too, organizational tips, mind hacks, and all around thought provoking videos.
I'm also SUPER excited to say that one of my photos made it into one of his videos! I took a picture of a heart leaf years ago in a beautiful park in my hometown and submitted it to him for his recent video. Check, check, check the video out. It's all about hearts yo! Also, it's about seeing the world more clearly with focus and intention.
Pnoto Credit: Yep....that's my heart pic there on the left above! I'm a little bit too excited that my sweet little heart made it's way all the way to Australia. Taken in beautiful Port Townsend WA/Chetzemoka Park.
Check out the video below!
Below is another video of his that's great. It's basically about putting a gun to your head so to speak to get the impossible done. It involves him running a marathon and is very entertaining while being super instructional too. It's just so genuine...and real....he's very honest about the struggle. As someone that also struggles, I can appreciate the candor!
I especially love the video above as when it was released I had just completed some research on Doschetvsky. You know, the old ancient relic that wrote such greats as The Gambler, Crime and Punishment, and The Brothers Karamozov. Well apparently, he was also quite the degenerate gambler and in a final cry to pay off his gambling debts he used the exact formula that Struthless did to run this marathon. He put a proverbial gun to his head.
"Having lost everything at roulette , Dostoevsky made one final wager: he bet a predatory publisher that he could deliver a novel within a strict deadline or he would forfeit the publishing rights and income to all past and future works."
Struthless also used this approach by creating a video and scheduling it to post to his YouTube that would ruin his career if he didn't complete a marathon.
All barriers to giving up were taken away. Unless of course you wanted your entire life completely destroyed.
So long story short? Can't get motivated? Put a proverbial gun to your head.
Struthless ran that marathon (spoiler alert!) and Dostoevsky wrote "The Gambler" in the nick of time; paying off his gambling debts with a story about....drum roll please.....gambling addiction.
Struthless gets a A++++ for his original, authentic, funky, smart, artistic, and funny ways. I really am so impressed by his work. He is a great teacher. In terms of being a creator, also an inspiration.
If you dig through his channel, he also has the coolest drawing videos.
