I’ve always been really into art and drawing but after my accident I lost all of my ability to use my hands/fingers and parts of my wrist. A couple weeks after the accident, I finally picked up a marker and drew picture of a flower and clouds. I had to use a device wrapped around my hand to hold the marker. It was very, very sloppy but I still did it and I was okay with that. Two years later I’m still drawing but I think you’ll notice a big difference. I no longer need to use the device wrapped around my hand. Instead, I wrap the drawing utensil around my fingers. But don’t let that confuse you with the fact that I have regained the ability in my hands. I haven’t. My disabilities in my hand are still the same but I just have learned how to work around them.
These pictures are in consecutive order from first time I picked up a marker to present day.
Also, there are pictures on how I hold the utensil.
