Kyoshi comic on new page every three weeks schedule

Edit: So I didn't want to admit this, most of all to myself, but a while ago I started developing carpal tunnel syndrome in my left wrist (in addition to the hand problems I already had). I was hoping I could just reduce the workload and it would heal, but it's become clear that I need to reduce it more than that, and because of it, even with rushing the drawings and working seven days a week, I can't keep up the schedule my comics are on anymore. Which is why there's no new Kyoshi page today.

At least if there's an upside, I'm pretty sure the reason I developed carpal tunnel syndrome was because I tried working while laying down in bed because I can't sit long, which turned out to be unergonomic, so once it's healed I can probably avoid developing it again.

However, for now I'm going to try for a new Kyoshi page every three weeks instead of two. Hopefully I can manage that. Back to the previous page comment:

Lots of problems with this page. A while ago I tried drawing with a pencil instead of on my wacom and was surprised to notice how much more accurate my lines were. It just felt better and I had a much easier time drawing. Or so l thought. Then I drew this page with a pencil and remembered why I switched to all digital - being able to easily flip the image and move existing lines is essential for me because I'm terrible at spotting the flaws in my own artwork, and I don't have the hand endurance to finish a drawing, then come back to it later and notice it looks weird and have to redraw it.

What would really be optimal is getting a cintiq. Then I wouldn't have to struggle with the awkwardness drawing somewhere and having the lines show up somewhere else and would have all the benefits of working digitally too. If only they weren't so expensive. :/
