Hand pain ends my inking sessions after a few hours. I know why: I squeeze the pens too hard. I've tried to train myself to not do that, but when I get into the zone the squeezing fires itself right up.

My friend Mary Kowal suggested pen grippies. So I bought a bunch, and hey, maybe a week from now I'll be back to putting in eight hours of inking in a single session.

I went to a local classroom supply store, but you can probably start on Amazon to see who makes what, and then head out to Staples, Office Max, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or even Wally World to get 'em. 

Here are a couple of Amazon Links:
amzn.to/1mcimdB <-- Basic gel wraps
amzn.to/1rNbUwz <-- These look cool, and I couldn't find 'em at the store.
amzn.to/1rNchak <-- These are basically what I got, only mine were bigger. 

NOTE: this is not working out great, at least not yet. This does feel like I'm learning to draw again. Argh. Also, for them to sit in the right place the grippies often have to be slid onto the pen after the cap is removed, and that's annoying.

I know that feeling, when I use my tablet's pen I end up squeezing too hard and accidentally pushing the buttons on it and making right-click menus all over the place.
