It's all in the wrist
This isn't exactly autobiographical. I use the term carpal tunnel as a shortcut. I actually have RSI - repetitive stress injuries in my wrists and shoulders. But that doesn't roll off the tongue as well as carpal tunnel. So for cartoon purposes, there you go.
But whether this cartoon is 100% truthful or not, it does lead me to this: the pain I live with almost every day is actually pushing me to adapt, change, and recreate my art style. That has resulted in this cartoon -- and all of the others that I'm running this month. I think today's drawing is the epitome of what I'm trying to accomplish now, and I'm happy to share it with you here today.
Pain won't stop me. It just pushes me forward.
