Look after number one
I’m writing to you with a suggestion, since I know many artists face the same problem at some point when they don’t watch out for their bodies and draw all day without breaks. I’m speaking of back and wrist pains, which can kick you out of business pretty fast if you don’t watch out. So I wanted to ask if it’s possible to feature an article about how to prevent these types of injuries before they start to become a major problem. I know many people only try to do something about it when it becomes hindering in their daily work, but that’s usually too late already. I know this topic isn’t fun, but I’m sure many people would be grateful for some tips. Your big fan Lisa, via email Claire replies That's a great idea Lisa. Artists may be fastidious in the cleaning of their art tools, or the maintaining of their software and hard drives, but often overlook how they can keep themselves in a good condition to be able create. I'll look into getting this into an upcoming issue.
