The winter is extraordinary DRY this year!
I generally have dried skin, but these days, look at my hands…. They’re parched and itchy, and the fingers are cracked open and bleeding….
They hurt… :~(
Hand cream would help, but…
I can’t put it on my hands.
If I did, the grease of the cream would come off on the drawing paper and repel the ink.
It’s not just hand cream, though.
When I work on the paper, I almost always put the gloves on so that paper won’t get any stain.
Oh, I cut out the finger portions of the gloves so I can hold my pen with ease.
Except the pinky, ‘cause that’s what directly touches the paper. φ(.. )
How do other writers deal with it, I wonder?
To battle with this dry season…?
