Hot Yoga 2

comic about hot yoga

I really wasn’t expecting to become a hot yoga convert this month, but I went to cold yoga last week and was low-key resentful about it, so I maybe I am?? But I also did hot yoga yesterday and lied on the floor for half of it so I guess it’s still complicated.

Practice practice practice

Practice is one of the hardest things for me to make time for consistently as an illustrator. Whenever I sit down to practice, I end up feeling like I need to end with a finished piece, or the time will have been “wasted.” This gives a lot of anxiety about starting at all! I have to really deliberately schedule practice with the understanding that the point is to have a lot of “unfinished” work.

Of all the types of exercises I use, regular figure drawing improves my work in general the most. This month I’ve been dedicating 10-30 minutes a day to drawing figures, and it’s been really helpful!

If you’re looking for someplace to practice too, a few good sites for timed figure drawing practice are SenshiStock Sketch and Sketch Daily, which even has a 30-minute class mode. Practice on, y’all.
