Sickbed Bob by Nevuela Sickbed Bob by Nevuela
Fourth Sideshow Bob pic in four days. Wow. Am I obsessed or what? 8D

No particular story behind this piece. No idea why Bob's in the hospital. Could be his heart defect, could be anything. He could be distraught because he's received a grim prognosis, is about to undergo major surgery, or he could just be hamming it up. Whatever the reason, Cecil is definitely sympathetic. :)

A note on the fine details: the bruises on Bobís arms are the result of failed attempts to insert an IV. I often come home from the hospital with bruises on account of my smaller-than-average veins. His right arm looks a little puffy. That was honestly an accident that I didn't bother to fix, but we can just chalk it up to the saline solution. It tends to do that to you. As I was finishing up I realized Iíd forgotten to add those wire thingies that they tape to your chest to monitor your vitals. Adding them at the last minute made them look kind of sketchy, as you can see them coming up from under Bobís hospital gown.

I think I enjoy putting Bob in vulnerable positions a little too much. :) Again, I do apologize if my art offends anyone. If anyone understands what itís like to see a loved one sick in the hospital, it's me. Those of you who know me well enough will remember that my mom spent a month and a half in the ICU (so heavily sedated that she was never truly conscious during my visits) before she passed away in June 2009. Those 46 days were the hardest thing I have ever had to endure, and the fact that Iíve moved on from it unscarred is nothing short of a miracle.

I think I will see him cuz I'm in hospitle because I was walking to the store to get me a soda pop, came home and as soon I put the soda on the Coffee table and sat in the couch, I had a REALLY bad stroke. I'm in the hospitle with a broken arm (luckily it was my left arm cuz I'm a righty), my kidney is bruised, but the worst part is that I'm now handicapp, but the doctor did say I should be able to walk once more on march 21 which is my bday, so I get the greatest gift of all, me walking again

Well, looks like I'm going no where and so far it sucks, my room is upstairs and it is impossible to get up there, I smell like a dirty llama cuz I can't shower, and don't even ask me about using the bath room... Luckily there is one man who can take care of me...

I honestly don't think any art should offend anyone.
Unless that someone is SOPA. Noncanon bastards...
But that's off topic...

This picture is beautiful.
I better stop looking, bad memories are coming back.
