This semester was very heavy on the drawing, particularly in my animation & figure drawing classes. One thing I hadn’t anticipated was the development of a painful cramp in my right wrist and elbow from the many hours of drawing without stopping to stretch and not paying much attention to my ergonomic positioning, which apparently is a thing.
So rather than force myself to draw through the pain and just hope it will get better on its own, I’m going to try to give it a rest for two weeks to relax and maybe also build myself a buffer of strips again. I want to draw, but I also don’t want to do irreversible harm to the already inflexible tendons in my arm.
Damn, I just iambic pentameter’d that last sentence.
Anyway, if you’d like to check out some other stuff I’ve been up to in the meantime I’ve started a photo blog with a few other peeps at The Photo Blob. What is TFB, you may wonder? It’s a small collective of photographers sharing one interesting photo per day. Feel free to stop by, peruse some cool photos, leave comments, and share.
And if you haven’t seen it already, here’s the animated short “The Elephant Gun” that I did for animation class. I think I spent more time on this than I did for the last fifty WoK strips. It’s kind of opened up the possibility of making cartoons for me, which is pretty exciting.
Thanks for reading, and see you on the 28th!
