Hello again, one and all; we hope you’re staying safe and well.

As a reflection of the current state of world affairs, this week’s Art of the Day addresses the subject of all things medical; doctors, nurses, hospitals, illness, and of course, quarantines and social distancing.

Enjoy….and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.


We open with a recap of one of the major plot points in the ‘Shock Collar’ version of Zootopia.  

It all began when, Nick had his Tame Collar removed in the wake of a neck injury–and found the experience to be nothing short of euphoric.

Reckoning there was money to be made, Nick created an amusement park, Wild Times, a place where predator species could have fun without having to wear those collars.  In order to allow his patrons to take them off, Nick set himself up as a fake MD.  (Physicians were some of the only animals that could legally remove a tame collar)

Nick originally tagged Finnick to serve as his ‘nurse’.

The $50.00 price on the sign Finnick is holding was the cost of an exam from Dr. Wilde, (actually, it was the Wild Times entrance fee.)

Later in the script, he got a visit from a VERY skeptical Judy Hopps.

The only doctor to appear in the theatrical version of Zootopia was Dr. Madge Honeybadger.

For our next series of images, we present a gallery featuring Nick and/or Judy, laid up sick in bed.

Nothing like a little TLC to put an injured fox on the mend.

Fair’s fair, so here’s some pics of Judy looking after Nick in the hospital.

That ‘cone-collar’, together with Judy’s smile just makes this pic.

She really visits him in his room.

This pic actually made me a little nervous.  See that gadget on the pole, to the right of Nick and Judy?  It bears a very close resemblance to a chemotherapy infusion machine.
I would never, ever wish chemo on Mr. Wilde, (or anyone else for that matter.)

Here’s two pics of Nick, leaving the hospital together with Judy; first one is serious, the other, a little more humorous.

Until next time….stay home, stay distant, and stay healthy.


Bonus Pic:
As part of a challenge to draw Judy in several different outfits, one artist depicted her in a bio-hazard suit. (Note the zipper on the ear, a nice touch.)
