These print ads by Kyle Stopperan for the Medical Center of the Rockies are incredibly cute. Stopperan uses images of a feverish bullfrog, a snarling dog, a bottle of Pepto-Bismol, a skateboarding senior, and a sliding baseball player to illustrate times in which a patient might need to head to the hospital.
I'm particularly fond of the feverish bullfrog--that's exactly how I feel (and look, I'm sure) when I'm under the weather!
