One of the things I was working on before all my back problems was teaching myself how to draw comic-style cartoons. I’d been carrying my sketchbook and pencils with me, as well as the book I was working my way through step-by-step. Unfortunately, it’s rather difficult to draw when lying on one’s back for an indefinite amount of time, so I haven’t done much drawing or sketching in the last month.
Now that my surgery is behind me and I’m starting on the road to recovery, my mind has gone back to my drawing. I’m still not quite to the point where I feel like I could sit down with my sketchbook and pencils and draw for a while, but I do feel better than I have in several weeks and so I’ve rediscovered my interest in some of my hobbies. I’m looking forward to getting back to some of them and even producing some more “Not Quite Right” strips with characters that are somewhat more interesting than stick figures.
