the artist and the doctor in the library

commonplace book, published art, sketchbook

titleThe Richard Brautigan Library published a story I illustrated – the story was told to me by Dr. Bob Hoke; a psychiatrist, a reader, a father, a grandfather and a baker of very good English Muffins. Over lunch one day he told me a story of a lesson he learned as a young Navy doctor on a submarine during a war – and as he talked I wrote and drew in my sketchbook (much as you see pages in this blog).  The lesson he’d learned turned out to be a good lesson for me too. Later I “neatened up my notes” and created “The Captain and The Doctor” which was put on display in the Brautigan Library!  You can download, for free,  the pdf file of the story here  – enjoy!

And yes, this is the same Dr. Hoke that I did the “Dr. Bob’s Emotional Repair Program; First Aid Kit” with – it’s an ebook available whereever ebooks are sold.
