I like the series Orc Stain very much. It's unfortunate the series is always on a forever-hiatus. The artist, James Stokoe is left handed and I noticed he hold the pen very oddly.

I will admit I had thoughts of poking fun at this. After all we are all taught in school how to properly hold a writing tool. I still remember the worksheet in elementry of a wonky crane telling you the wrong and right ways... but this got me thinking. According to wiki 70–90% of the world population is right-handed. So the standard practice works with the majority of righties, right? So left-handed people are taught how to write and draw with tools like righties. Well while I'm in this glorious flood of motivation to draw I ended up getting a blister on my ring finger. I really want to finish at least one page today so I thought about James stokoe. I changed the way I held the pen and hoooo-leeeee-shit. It is really, really, REALLY weird how much of a difference it makes. Not only does it make my lines straighter, my handwriting doesn't look like chicken scratch. Now I'm not saying this works for everyone. Maybe some people are better at adapting to different styles.

Or maybe I'm just rambling all this to justify I've been holding the pen wrong for 15 years...
