sometimes you just gotta. lay down on the grass. stretch your back all the way out on the dirt with all the bugs, especially if you slouch. this is to reset yourself. it only works on grass or dirt. anywhere else and it doesn't work right. spend some time looking at the sky while you're down there.
Hey three different people I follow on tumblr have gotten carpel tunnel since the lockdown so if you're gonna be drawing to pass the time in quarantine PLEASE do stretches and take breaks,,, look after yourselves I love y'all
The same thing with typing for long periods of time! Writers please also remember to stretch and take breaks! And everyone should drink some water.
[ID: tweet by LMVT Catmin @ LMVTACAB. it reads:
I get all the guillotine jokes. I do. but in a moment of crisis like this, those kinds of jokes are inappropriate and dangeorus. You can't maintain proper social distancing with a guillotine. Be responsible and use RANGED weaponry (at least 2 METER range) per CDC recommendations.

Now, you will never hear me talking about “healthy” food. I loathe the term, but not as much as I am disgusted by the contemporary mantra of “clean eating”. In How to Eat, written so long ago, I wrote: “What I hate is the new-age voodoo about eating, the notion that foods are either harmful or healing, that a good diet makes a good person and that that person is necessarily lean, limber, toned and fit...Such a view seems to me in danger of fusing Nazism (with its ideological cult of physical perfection) and Puritanism (with its horror of the flesh and belief in salvation through denial).” The Clean-Eating brigade seems an embodiment of all my fears. Food is not dirty, the pleasures of the flesh are essential to life and, however we eat, we are not guaranteed immortality or immunity from loss. We can not control life by controlling what we eat. But how we cook and, indeed, how we eat does give us - as much as anything can - mastery over ourselves

i may in fact be drawing a moth plague doctor
- has a microscope in their medical bag
- the feelers are to catch particulate and study it later
- every good doctor has a pokey stick and this one as a weird caterpillar esque skull and spine design on the handle
- the mouth parts open up to refresh medicinal herbs without exposing the face
- ngl i feel like i couldve made the eyes larger
