doctor schwarzheit administers to the melancholy mr. collins

ever since i first encountered them in an old hellraiser comic, the bird-like plague doctor has always been a fun image to me. i mean, really, what’s more fun than a man dressed as a rather unnerving bird in the midst of the wailing of the pestilent and the dying?

while i do not credit all my well-being to absinthe, it does make life a little more bearable and who better to administer it to me (the figure is me back in my college days) than the plague doctor. absinthe is, after all, one of the cures for the plague of mediocrity, in my books.
