Sunday Workout Report

"What a Difference Five Pounds Makes" Edition!

Several of the exercises went up by a 5 lb notch this week, making some of them -- particularly the Rope Pushdown, hella more difficult. Owie! >.< On the other hand, I also goofed and did the Seated Lateral Shoulder Raise at 15 lbs instead of 20, so it was easier than it should have been. Still, there's good news at the end!Collapse )

Yeah, now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! ;)

Unfortunately, work is being stupid (again), so I have to go in early tomorrow and won't start jogging 'til Wednesday, it looks like. (I know I'm not going to want to jog after work tomorrow.) So maybe I'll use tomorrow evening to try to get a little ahead on strips again. We'll see!

Artist Envy

I envy lots of artists, for lots of reasons. I envy Herbie Throat-Warbler Mangrove for his art's energy, appeal, and amazing anatomical work; I envy Vince for his skill with layouts, visual metaphor, and black-and-white compositioning ability.

But today, I envy them both for something I have never had and never expect to achieve:

SPEED.

I have been working on Monday's strip for two hours now -- and it's only half done. Some of it's my Scrivener's Palsy, a lot of it's just the fact that my art skill is half-baked and I have to do as much erasing as I do drawing.

I'm really, really not suited to be doing this. -.- But I keep doing it anyway.

At least now the layout inks are drying and I can take a break to lie down for a few minutes. Owie. *rubs sore hand*

Great Googily Moogily

Spent on Monday's strip so far: 7 hours, minus a 45 minute nap-and-lunch break. Now it's off to katayamma for coloring, whom I can only hope won't have as much difficulty.

Yikes.
