Project Disability submission by joeyv7 Project Disability submission by joeyv7
This is my submission for :icon1pen:'s challenge for any and all dA artists, Project Disability. 1pen.deviantart.com/ The idea is to experience what injured and disabled artists go through as they continue to create, despite the handicaps they face.
I played it safe with the subject, a simple form. Drawn and colored entirely with my 'wrong' hand in pencil, ink and Copic markers. Erasing was really difficult, and I could NOT move the Copics freely at all. But after a bit, a funny thing happened - I just became involved with the process as if I was using my good hand. Making something I liked became more dominant than my self - imposed 'handicap'.
This has been a great experience, and you should try it.
:heart: Featured here, thanks! Birthday Feature for 12-8-13Happy Birthday to these artists!!!:

Oh, give it a try, you'll be surprised how your brain kind of takes over, and it doesn't feel awkward, just different.

Quit being so fantastic... seriously. :) Your artwork is always a welcome and brilliant sight, especially for the causes you have taken up. A beautiful spirit behind the beautiful creations.

This really turned out great! Much better than I could even do with my RIGHT hand :D

What a cool project... I think I may have to try it. Not sure how to do that with clay though! :P
