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!

Hi. I've just discovered your page from a link on the youtube interview you did with Sycra.
It was a great interview and very interesting to hear your story. (link here if anyone wants to watch it www.youtube.com/watch?v=OiTwzR… )
Your art is wonderful.
Also, I don't mean to sound like a creeper but you are super pretty. I wish you all the success in the world.

You're very welcome and thanks for taking the time to reply (I'm sure you're very busy).
Sorry to hear about your elbow. Perhaps cod liver oil tablets will help (worked for my knees, but I did buy good quality ones).
Take care. :)
