Work and Progress

4. Sketchbook: 2006, View From a hospital Bed NYC

During the Winter of 2005-Summer of 2006 I had some medical issues and I was in and out of the hospital for about a 8 months. It was a difficult time for me, my personal life was in shambles and I was relocating (the following week), back to California. In July of the same year I developed a staph infection on my inner thigh and I was admitted into the hospital immediately. they kept me there spontaneously for 5 depressing days.

I was in the same hospital that Andy Warhol died in. They said he went in for a routine visit and never made it out. (unnecessary factoid.)

I was getting better but they were’ nt releasing me, I can feel California over the horizon.

They finally let me go after 5 days. I felt like Tim Robbins at the end of Shawshank Redemption.
