Antiquated

I got some mock-ups done of the Missing Moment book! It’s so cool seeing it next to Sister Claire: Libro 1. It’s kind of like the little baby Claire book grew into an adult Claire book…

I’m so wiped… I spent all day fighting with the printer to make it print the way I wanted. But it came out great! All that’s left now is to go through this nightmare repeatedly until we have more books… and then assembling, stapling, and trimming the edges off them all! (Book picture is still untrimmed.)

I’m so excited for this!  My name’s on the cover of something!  Aaaaah!

Aww man, I saw this when it was first posted but I just now realized how cute the little authors drawing was

"What is this place?" —
"The town of Spectre. Best-kept secret in Alabama!"

Big Fish — dir. Tim Burton (2003)

My fiancee’s uncle made all the signs for this movie :V

See these torture devices? This is what I have to deal with when I get too excited/overloaded with work and I draw and draw and draw with no regard for the warning aches in my wrists.
I know a lot of other artists suffer from tendonitis/carpal tunnel syndrome, and webcomic artists are especially prone to it since we spend a lot of time hunched over keyboards too. (I’ve noticed typing seems to aggravate it more than drawing.)
Here are some tips I have learned the hard way:
Don’t assume the pain will “go away eventually” and just keep drawing.  Trust me, it will not. It’s only downhill from here. The pain means you’ve already injured yourself.  Take a break.
If you do press on anyway, you’ll have to wait longer to heal.  When I first had my doctor see me, he said to take a minimum two week break from drawing and typing.  If you are like me, that’s like asking me to stop breathing for that long.  Do you want to die?? Do you?? I didn’t think so.  Put the pen down and take a break.
It takes a LONG time to heal. It took me about two years to stop feeling the effects when I messed my wrists up really bad the first time.
Once you feel better, the instinct is to immediately jump right back into drawing/typing/whatever activity caused your repeated stress injury  (hey I’m not judging) but be careful not to overdo it and hurt yourself all over again!  It’s not like a videogame health bar that always replenishes back to full.  I’ve noticed that once I got tendonitis, it never fully went away, and the more often I induced it with bad habits, the sooner it comes back after doing the same amount of drawing.  Pay attention to your activity and to your body telling you it’s time to stop before it hurts.
This video of wrist exercises helped reduce my pain a lot, and is also good for preventing it in the first place.
Take care of yourself, artists.  Your hands are your livelihood.  Don’t take them for granted!

I’m hungry why doesn’t this side of the airport have a Tim Hortons

Why isn’t there a Tim Hortons every 50 paces

Why can’t I summon Tim Hortons to manifest in front of me by willing it

This is Canada, dammit.

Timmies all day erry day
