injury - tennis elbow

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 30, 2014, 9:15 AM

i posted a poll last month about drawing injuries and the comments on that poll totally exploded! since i don't have the time to reply to each one individually, i just wanted to let you guys know that i read them and really appreciate the input. it was very comforting for me to know i'm not alone! i myself had tennis elbow last february and it has slowly improved, with what i would guess is a 95% recovery at the moment. my arm feels normal in my daily life and after short drawing sessions, but after a day of drawing, it flares up. i have to take on a new approach to drawing that requires lots of breaks, rest, stretching and a more relaxed approach, which is harder than it sounds! more about that here.

anyways, i just wanted to share those two links with you guys. they might be a comfort to anyone who is struggling with an injury, as well as a warning to anyone who is at risk of developing one! if you have the tendency to draw for hours on end, without breaks, and gets easily stressed or carried away with your work, then please take the time to learn about the risks now before it's too late!

Ik heb ehct ZO veel over je art gehoord en ook ehct veel van gezien en dacht steeds van: die is zo getalanteerd.
Aan je naam dacht ik dat je Frans was ofzo maar nu zie ik gewoon dat je Nederlands bent.
NEDERLANDS! dit is miss misplaatst maar ik voel me stiekum toch een beetje trots als mede nederlander ghehehe
Anyway heb jij een studie gedaan waardoor je zo hebt leren tekenen?
Ikzelf wil ook ehct zo graag goed worden in digitaal tekenen maar zit echt nog bij de begin lijn zeg maar^^
oh en natuurlijk moet ik ff zeggen: je art is geweldig!!
