Hey, long time no see!
I have both good and bad news.
Let's get the bad ones over with: My drawing arm doesn't work properly =_= I seem to have overworked it, and for the past weeks it has been hurting so much I haven't been able to draw at all. I went to the doctor and got some exercises to relax and stretch the muscles and nerves. It seems to be helping but I still can't hold a pen or work by the computer for long before the pains increase again. I think it's heading in the right direction, though! Slowly. I just need to be patient, I guess, and take one step at a time. Does anyone else have experience with similar problems? How did you solve it?
What about the good news, then? I'm taking my first real steps as a freelance artist right now! So you can imagine that I consider the arm pains to be QUITE inconvenient.
There is a lot to learn about taxes, bookkeeping and other things, but I'm very motivated and excited and it feels great to give it a try! I'm not sure whether I'll aim for 100% yet or have a part-time job on the side, but that will sort itself out in time, I think : )
I miss being online here, but I hope that my arm will heal soon so that I can both show you new art (I have SO many ideas!) and interact with you more. Until then I will lurk a bit more in the shadows
