Hospital Visit: FYI

Stuart Driedger is one of ursa’s pet artists, and a frequent E. Leventine contributor. He has previously released a concept album (Demolish Us Vol 3, with The Amazing Lee Possibles) which ties in with an upcoming collaborative comic project between he and ursa, Santa and the Enchanted Delorean. His most recent submissions were his collection of semi-coherent diaries written while he was hospitalized.

ursa interviewed Stu and compiled a sort of chronology/index to accompany each chapter. Key words are linked to reference articles for clarity. The notes for each chapter are linked to the relevant diary entry, and should help untangle the drugged up stream-of-thought mania that are his hospital diaries.
