The Hospital Drawings came as result of a number of knee surgeries I underwent in 2017. These drawings are based on both imagined and real experiences in the operating room, the Emergency Department admission and hospital stays.  I made a serious subject into a fun subject.  Unable to paint during this period, which lasted months, these were done on an Ipad and started while I was in the hospital. JAMA’s first graphic magazine story published October 8, 2019 | Click here to view PDF.
