My arm! It’s free!

Exactly what it says on the tin. My arm is out of the cast and the pins are removed! (photos of said pins coming eventually). It’s been a week of careful going to get my hand limbered up enough to hold a stylus, but it’s going quite well! Better than I could have hoped, actually.

That means, new pages for White Noise will resume this Sunday! I have one almost done but I’m gonna hang on to it until then to give myself plenty of time for the next one. Last thing I want is to re-injure myself. Once page 29 goes live, WN will be going back to a once a week update schedule! For realz.

Thanks for sticking with me! Have some sketches of new characters coming in book three! Which, my god, I’ll be getting to in like a month. 0_o.

Also, vote! to see a preview of the nest page!

More News about the arm

Okay, so. There was a chance yesterday that the pins were coming out, but no dice. I’ve got another two weeks with them in, and since the one going under my thumb is skewering a tendon and a nerve, I still can’t hold a stylus, and won’t be able to till they do come out. It’s definitely two weeks from now though! In the interests of not stressing my now flimsy wrist out too much, I’m gonna go ahead and say that updates to White Noise will resume in three weeks, tentatively. Thanks all for your patience. :) Keep an eye on my tumblr in the meantime for more left-handed attempts at art and some old stuff I haven’t uploaded until now.

Ohayocon

Hey all! Well my arm is doing well enough that I’ve decided, with my mom’s help, to tackle manning our Artist Alley table at Ohayocon this weekend. :) We will be on the left halfway down the aisle. My mom will be selling her lovely jewelry and lace chokers, and I will be there promoting the comic. I still don’t have printed copies to sell yet, and obviously won’t be doing commissions, but if you see me please come say hello! I’ll be the one with the big blue cast on her arm. ;)

More Info

Heya, I promised an update on my arm, so here it is. They did not have to put a plate in! Just two pins going in under either side of my hand, looking a little like shishkabob scewers. They’ll be coming out in a few weeks (I think 4-5 ish now). I can move a few fingers so far but not well, and not my thumb at all, so I’m still not sure when I’ll be able to pick up a stylus again. Oh, we figured out yesterday that I probably chipped a bone in my ring finger too, so that’s wrapped now. Fun stuff. I am bored out of my mind, omg.

So Funny Story

Guess what I just did! I stepped on some black ice with treadless boots and went flying. Of course, I broke my arm, and yes, of course its my drawing hand. So needless to say, updates are going to be on hold until I’m able to hold a stylus again. This is going to be at least three weeks.

I didn’t halfass it either. The break is right under the radial head, which is now in three pieces and the rest of the bone is way out of alignment. This means I get to wait for it to be set until surgery tomorrow, when they’ll be putting some temporary pins in. If I’m really unlucky, and why would I stop now, they’re going to have to put in a plate, which will not be temporary. The bone doc assures me that this will not hamper my ability to do art, so there’s that.

Pretty wild, right? Not getting off to a good start here, 2015.

I’m at 5 1/2 pages left on book two, dammit. :/
