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 know you don't have time to answer a lot of comments, but just in case you see this, I wanted to say that I've been keeping up with your work for a couple of years now and seeing your continuous leaps of improvement is absolutely stunning; it's obvious you work so hard on what you do, and it definitely pays off.  Your simultaneous meticulous attention to detail and awareness of each piece as a whole as you paint it is mind-blowing.

Again, I realize your lack of time but I was wondering (don't worry, this isn't a request for art or anything :D) if you'd seen the art of hoooook?  (Yes, with five o's.)  I found him on dA recently, and his painterly style and the slight surreal-ness of his art, particularly in his earlier stuff, really reminded me of you.  (Also, I promise you, this isn't shameless advertising of an artist, I swear!  Just seeing a lot of the artists you like, and seeing your work, made me think you'd like this person.)

Anyway, if you see this, I hope you like the artist.  If you don't see this, oh well!  Just thought I'd leave a comment anyway!

Best wishes,
Amadeaux


P.S.  Aah, sorry for the long comment!  Just one more person--77chen.  Their use of colour and light in, as well as the fluidity of their environment pieces reminded me of your landscape studies. Anywho, whether you happen to see this or not, cheers!  Sorry again for the insanely long comment.  Hope you're having a wonderful day.
