It’s Charlie’s first time in hospital in all of his 73 years, and understandably, he’s a bit scared. We’ve all been there, and felt his pain.
Prismacolor and Staedtler Ergosoft pencils on 300gsm paper card. A3 size.

I’m a self-taught artist from the North of England and I like to inject a bit of humour wherever possible, whether it’s in my writing (see my poems), or my artwork.
Thanks for stopping by and please feel free to leave comments on any pieces you like.

    Ah yes, reminds me of my back operation when the surgeon explained the catheter procedure. Great work Margaret once again.

  • Oo, the thought makes my eyes water, and so glad I was born female. Thanks so much Gary.

    Excellent work as usual. Reminds me of the closing shot in a Carry on film, set in a hospital and a daffodil used as a thermometer on Wilfred Hyde-White. Cheers Neil

    PS It was Carry on Nurse and he played the Colonel . N

  • I’m guessing the daffodil wasn’t inserted into the Colonel’s mouth? Thanks for the lovely comment Neil.
