Comers Children Hospital

This past weekend I went to Comer's Children Hospital of Chicago. It was great to walk into a room and see a child who has no idea who I am or why I am there. I pull up next to their bed and ask them what is their favorite Pixar character? Pulling out my pen and paper, I start to sketch. Watching their puzzled face turn to shear happiness when they see Woody staring back at them. Or Jessie, McQueen, Dory, Dash, I even got a request for SpongeBob :)

It was certainly a moment I will always remember.

Practicing the night before in my hotel room
Still practicing, this time at lunch before I head off to the hospital

After a successful visit, my left hand looks like it went through a war-zone


  1. You are too good, as an artist and human being.

  2. Thats so sweet - i cant imagine what that would be like both for you and the child :)

  3. great on you man, your really nice. On a side note, what pen/or marker is that.

  4. Wow! What a wonderful thing to do for those kids! I bet you really made their day! Hopefully, there will be more trips like this made in the future! XD

  5. i wish i could see their faces i bet they were happy :D

  6. Ah- the old 'Tombow black finger' syndrome!
