(NO) PAIN! The mega-mini comic
THE CAREER-SAVING-MEGA-MINI-COMIC, (NO) PAIN!
If my time as a guest teacher at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction Vermont has taught me anything, it's that drawing pictures inside tiny little panels day after day can cause injury.
This year I've heard story after story about cartoonists being unable to draw for days, weeks, or months due to pain and injury. These stories, the injuries of a few of my students, and the fact that everyone in White River Junction is making comics inspired me to make this mini.
(NO) PAIN! gives the basics of injury prevention targeted specifically to cartoonists. It explains how injuries happen and what injuries commonly affect drawing professionals.
You can learn what types of symptoms should be diagnosed by a doctor.
There are simple exercises and routines to help correct posture and reduce pain and fatigue.
Clear, informative, and packed with wholesome corrective goodness, this sixty page mega-minicomic can get you started practicing simple routines that will help take care of your most important drawing instrument --- your body!
Want a copy? You MIGHT be able to find one at Birdcage Bottom Books.
Otherwise, you will have to get my HUGE injury prevention book, Draw Stronger.
