Read Draw Stronger by Kriota Willberg

Draw Stronger is a comprehensive self-care guide to prevent art related repetitive stress injuries and to sustain a pain-free, life-long drawing practice.

Comics are a really effective way to illustrate both the stretches and types of pain and injuries you can get from drawing and other repetitive motions! I picked this book up this summer when I was feeling some weird sensations in my hands and used this to rest and stretch better, as well as making my workflow more ergonomic. This has lots of different stretches that I think would be helpful for anyone who sits and uses their hands a lot, as well as several different “stretch routines” you can follow.
