Jerk-Knee Update: 1/21/14on January 21, 2014 at 10:44 am
It’s time for another Jerk-Knee update and I am happy to report that things are going very well.
I am still on crutches and doing physical therapy twice a week but every session seems a little easier, my range of motion improves, and my leg is getting stronger. As of this post, I am scheduled to try to take a few serious weight-bearing steps at my appointment today and that my friends is a HUGE step (all of the pun intended).
What does this mean for comics? I am happily working on building a nice buffer of comics at the moment. I know this might not make much sense to some folks but having a wrecked leg really does effect how long I can sit comfortably at my desk and draw. I still have a day job that I spend at least 8 hours a day at, so when I make it home my leg is already a little taxed from sitting up all day. The good news is that my time at the drawing table is increasing every week and when the time comes to dive back into comics, I will have a nice buffer to lean on when/if I have bad leg days. I will be rolling right back into the Christmas arc (no fucks given if it’s January, February, or March) and then into the arcs I have written since being laid up.
I think good things are coming.
I know it is frustrating to check the site and feel the cold slap of no new comics (believe me I hurt more than you do in that regard) but I am working hard, taking P.T. seriously. and pushing to make it back to where I was before the accident.
Thank you all so much for your patience and support.
