Cartoon Pain Scale

The Internet’s full of distractions, from cute cat videos to nostalgic quizzes.

Last night I saw an alternative pain scale that made me laugh – someone had used works of art to replace the usual 1-10 of pain.

I liked this but despite being an artist myself I couldn’t fully relate to all the images, so I created my own alternative version… with stars of ‘80s and ‘90s cartoons!

Whether you grade your pain using old masters or cartoon ducks, scoring it can be a useful way of keeping track of changes and recognising that it doesn’t always stay the same.

This activity was a useful distraction from my Killer Tomato pain.

Fingers crossed for a Popple day tomorrow.
