Last year after HEROES CON, I came home with pain in my lower back worse than any I’ve ever experienced. Lower back problems run in my family…. and I’ve got it bad. I suppose that sitting hunched over a drawing table exacerbates the problem… and whenever I go to comic shows, the combination of horrible, cheap seating and flat tables make for a terrible combination for my lower spine. Last year, however, I was incapacitated for an entire week after the show. I had to go to a doctor and he prescribed pain killers for me to weather through.. but it was still agonizing. I spent that week on my side, unable to move. In an attempt to try to limit the amount of time I’m hunched over sketching at THIS years show, I’m working up some art to sell ahead of time here in the more comfortable confines of my home. I’m hoping to get quite a few done before I leave on Thursday– and I’ll be posting some of them here every day until then. So for this week, instead of MON/WED/FRI posting, I’ll be posting MONDAY through THURSDAY.

This is Entry 245.
