Left Get Physical

I drew this new Dustinland comic lefty since my right hand is broken. But man, physical therapy is not fun. Ouch.

That’s The Breaks

This week’s new Dustinland comic was not drawn, but instead built from Legos and photographed. It was fun, I have to say. A nice change of pace. But I’m still eager to have my drawing hand back. I wonder how long I’ll have this cast on, and what I’ll do next week for my comic. Legos again? We’ll have to see…

I Broke My Hand

Oops. Guess this is as close as I’ll be getting to a comic anytime soon.

Technically it’s a fracture of one of the smaller bones but it definitely doesn’t feel good.

High five (lefty only).

The Dad Zone

Like I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, my kid is sorta in the dad zone these days, but hey, that’s not such a bad thing. I’ll just remind him of this when he’s 15 and doesn’t want to hang out with me.

Migraine

In this week’s new Dustinland comic, I pretty much show you what it’s like to have a migraine. Although I did leave out the incredible sensitivity to light. Not the trippy sparkly light they call auras. That I covered. I mean like once the pain starts, you can’t even be in a room with the lights on without cowering like a vampire. I was out in the broad daylight for a few minutes and I really did feel like Nosferatu. It would have been embarrassing if I wasn’t in such agony.

Anyway, I’d prefer not to do that again. Man, do I feel bad for people who deal with this all the time! Brutal. It is NOT a headache. A headache is like a cool breeze compared to this.

Well, if you do deal with migraines and people tell you to “suck it up” or something like that, send them this comic.
