Past Medical History is a collection of autobiographical essays detailing a lifelong series of events that motivated a young surgeon to walk out of the hospital, and disappear into an art studio. Leaving medicine was a tough decision to make, but who abandons a promising career to draw pictures for a living? There's got to be a story here. (And it turns out there is.)
Past Medical History was produced through DS Art Publications, the literary division of DS Art, an entity that comprises a particularly untidy corner of our studio. This is our second major in-house publishing effort, following on the success of our Coffee Table Book. Order both books together and save with our special Two Book Deal.
New Paperback Edition!
Back by popular demand: DS Art - The Visual Humor of Don Stewart is the re-issued collection of pun-filled composite renderings to flow from the steady pen and fluid mind of the comedic doctor-turned-artist, now in paperback.
Showcasing the best and funniest work from his first twenty years in the studio, this 80-page volume contains 56 of the artist's most popular ballpoint drawings, each intricately composed of dozens of hidden images and visual wordplay. These complex pictures illustrate a variety of subjects including animals, sports, music, and medicine, accompanied by amusing commentary and detailed component lists that complete the connection from the brain to the funny bone.
(So sorry - our hardcover first edition is SOLD OUT.)
