Illustration to accompany an article on Longreads - Muscle Memory: A Case History.
The article tells the story of a woman who injures her back in a pole dancing class and follows her physical recovery while also examining her relationship to her body and how it has impacted her intimate relationships. The narrator navigates a healing process in which she learns to listen to herself, work towards greater self knowledge and, in so doing, make better choices.
