The Dopamine Chronicles

An almost daily cartoon about Parkinson's

Walk like a cartoon!

Us PD folks don’t swing one arm properly when we walk. From my study of toon walks for animation its just a matter of swinging the opposite arm WAY forward with the foot that is moving forward, and why NOT exaggerate a bit like a cartoon walk? You’re gonna’ look goofy no matter what you do with this disease so why not put on a performance? Swing them things wild man! When I do I get a tiny flutter of the hand but so what? Go with the flow and channel your inner “Goofy”…
