Lamaze Coach


More than 27 years ago, when my wife and I were expecting our first child, we took a class in the Lamaze method at our local hospital.


I was impressed with the teacher's poses as she talked to us about breathing, pain, massage, empowerment, and confidence.

She hadn't had a baby yet herself, but she was very emphatic about what the experience was going to be like. As she talked, I tried to lock some of her keyframe poses in my short term memory, and note them down in ballpoint pen.

I was just wondering about a "census": How many human figures you must have been sketching away in your lifetime?

Thousands and thousands of them.

It shows.

Great show, this blog!
