“Dog Hospital” reflects my interest in language, sequential imagery, and the parallel experiences of parents and children. About a year ago I began writing down the conversations my two sons were having when they were playing different kinds of make-believe games. ‘Dog Hospital’ juxtaposes two ways of processing illness. The text comes from an afternoon listening to my sons enacting a make-believe ‘Dog Hospital’. The drawings respond to their story through the lens of my own experiences with sickness and treatment. Dog Hospital was printed with Hare and Hound Press in San Antonio in an edition of fifteen. A complete PDF of 'Dog Hospital' can be seen under 'Publications'.
