'Get well soon' messages to Peter Doherty
« on: 05 December, 2016, 07:51:05 pm »
For those of you who haven't heard, artist Peter Doherty has been very seriously ill in hospital since 23 November. Originally thought to be suffering a heart attack, Peter was diagnosed with a torn aorta and underwent major surgery. After a number of days under sedation he's now awake again but will be in hospital for a while yet.

We're putting together a card for Peter from the droids in the 2000 AD Command Module, but we'd also like to include messages from his fans on the forum.

So if you'd like to send him best wishes or a 'get well soon' message, please leave it on this thread and when we send the card we'll print them off and include them so that Peter can see just how many people are wishing him a speedy recovery.

Cheers,

Molch-R

All the best for a speedy recovery, Peter - as well as being an amazing artist and a pleasure to chat with, the panel you hosted at NICE con was one of the most entertaining I can remember.

I always loved your art, Peter, and I'm thrilled to hear you're awake again. Here's wishing you a full and speedy recovery – and also hoping you'll be back to art of some kind before long.

Good look with your recovery.

Its no surprise that your art has graced two of the truly great, emotional Dredd stories, 'Bury My Knee at Wounded Heart' and 'Death of a Legend'. Your subtle palette carries such depth and feeling, perfect for two of my all time favourite Dredd stories.

Best wishes and thanks.

Pete, I'm sorry to hear how hard a time you have had recently, but I'm delighted that you are back with us.

Take all the time in the world to get back to full fitness, as long as you promise us more fantastic art.

Take care.
