I dislocated my shoulder the about a week ago, and it has been hard to do some things, including drawing and writing. I’ve gotten a lot of mobility back now, so I’m back to drawing with my right. But last week I was practicing writing and drawing with my left quite a bit. Here are two of my favorite attempts.

I have to draw much more slowly with my left hand, and while I can’t apply the same pressure or manipulate the drawing utensil as I’d like to, I do kind of like the shaky line quality. Quite so!

After seeing a strange art show I went to the 3rd street diner for a beer and a slice of pie.
