Into animation? Here's a #toptip from the studio via our 2D Artist Derek Horan - this one's for all animators and artists to help keep from straining and injuring ourselves.

Derek: As an animator, whether working traditionally or digitally, you can be prone to straining the muscles in your arms. Repetitive stress injury is something we'd like to avoid as it means not being able to do what we love - animate!!

It's important to take the time to look after yourself by exercising and using correct posture when working.

Here's a very handy guide via Flooby Nooby that helps keep me in tiptop shape:
