The Yoga of Digital Art
Rising from my chair after many hours of fixation on my computer screen, I give praise and gratitude for the healing movements of Yoga Asana. I at last acknowledge the protestations of my shoulders and neck, held through a long spell of seated creativity. All I need to recover is a space no greater than ‘the length of a bow,’ space enough to dive into the sweet peace of a Sun Salutation.
What a perfect counterbalance to the sedentary nature of digital creation! What a welcome reminder of life beyond the screen!
How good it feels, this familiar place of health and inspiration, after days upon days of foraging beyond my comfort zone. I am wading into the rushing currents of the 3d sculpting and animation Pipeline, a self-prescribed curriculum to serve greater goals. The continuing path of digital art education sprawls before me, unfurling in long reams of golden toil. Though the road before me seems long, I know where to find respite along the way. Daily practice of Yoga and meditation calm my muscles and my mind.
