Has it been almost a month since my last post?

Yes, it bloody well has. Adding to issues mentioned in previous posts I now find myself suffering from a trapped nerve in the index finger of my right hand. Needless to say this is making most things necessitating the use of that hand quite difficult. Everything from holding a fork to using this damn computer is now a major issue. I blame the job. 20 years of using a computer for eight hours a day can do that to you. I should have seen the signs, after all, I spent five years risk assessing my colleague's workstations to help them avoid these problems. But I guess it's a case of do as I say, not as I do, eh?

I'm using some voice recognition software to help with the computer work. This, along with my Wacom tablet is helping (don't get to excited, it's just an old A5 Wacom, nothing special).


The images below are the last three Dr.Who sketches that I recently finished (see the earlier post below for details). Ever tried drawing when you cant hold your tools properly? There not so good. I feel like I'm learning how to draw all over again.

I really like your blog and your profile description sounds a lot like me... many unartistic professional experiences winding down to a creative vortex in a particular medium...

Really like these portraits. Reminds me of a failed graphic novel I tried to write with a writer friend before he bailed on me. The similarity of style and touch is uncanny.

I also have no time to read... even graphic novels. Sad.

Revisiting soon.
