Have you ever found yourself in a large hospital jonesing for a box of Chuckles but don't know where to find the vending machines? Maybe you're looking for the room where your new-born baby is being incubated? Perhaps you were just released from a long stay in a quarantine chamber and you need to get home to feed your cat? BIG HOSPITAL can help! I'm working to finish this 4 foot x 5 foot pen & ink and watercolor drawing (see progress here with explanations of each stage) in order to make BIG HOSPITAL prints for both those who might want one and for those who absolutely need one. Similar to its predecessor BIG CANAL, BIG HOSPITAL also contains a secret sloppy room piled high with pink donuts. The heavy-weight, glossy very high quality print will be frame-ready at approx. 25 inches x 30 inches. Prints will be expertly surrounded by bubble wrap inside a hard mailing tube and include a 4000px download for your desktop.
But don't take my word for it - check out the TESTIFY video below to see what real doctors and risk-taking professionals are saying about BIG HOSPITAL:
I’m an artist who mostly draws. I launched this campaign in order to make prints of BIG HOSPITAL and get them into the hands of people who might like to look at it. BIG HOSPITAL is my second in a series of "BIG" drawings (BIG CANAL was my first). This drawing focuses on all of the delightful things you would find inside of a large hospital. If you're familiar with my kids book The Clock without a Face (with Mac Barnett and Eli Horowitz) - you'll know how many hours that you, your kids, their kids and their neighbors will get from staring at this drawing. A [great] tool [for learning about hospitals].
Important places to consider hanging your BIG HOSPITAL:
- Any area where someone could get hurt
- Any area where floors could become slippery
- Any area where smoke detectors are a good idea
- Areas where there is even a slight possibility of asphyxiation, dehydration, over-medication, hypothermia or sadness

Risks and challenges
Unless my right arm snaps off or both my eyeballs are poked out, I'm pretty sure I can fulfill all of the reward obligations people have pledged for in a timely manner (my last BIG CANAL campaign went swimmingly).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
