Inspired by a line from Act XVII of "Being Bob" nevuela.deviantart.com/art/Bei… in which Bob is cautioned not to go outdoors within 24 hours of washing his hair when it's freezing or he'll get haircicles.
"Haircicles" was the original title of this pic, but then I thought of "Bobcicles" and liked that title better.

I wanted to make Robert more sinister, although I think the background turned out to be the best part of this pic.
I probably should have drawn him holding a scalpel or syringe or some other surgical equipment, but none of those seemed intimidating enough.

Been nocturnal lately, and therefore bored, lonely and a bit depressed. The whole world is asleep while I'm awake, and vice versa. Even the internet is a lonely place at 3:00 a.m.. The isolation and lack of sunlight wears you down quickly. That's why I drew this.
Dr. Robert Terwilliger works long shifts on his residency at the local hospital, often late into the night or early morning. His pregnant wife and son try to wait up for him, but they are usually sound asleep by the time he gets home. Some days he barely sees them at all. It is difficult for all of them, but the little time they DO manage to spend together is not taken for granted.
