About Halis Dokgoz
Facing the stressed day by day in his medical doctor's office, Halis Dokgoz still finds time to produce excellent cartoons where he interprets his world with humour and refined art. If as doctor Halis Dokgoz takes care the patients body, with humour he analyzes the soul of the human being. Many years I follow and admire his works, through hundreds of Cartoon contests around the world. Admiration that certainly you will have, too, when turning the pages of this book.
So, enjoy it!
Carlos Amorim / Brazil December 2009
The physicians are like magicians, they know how to bring out healthy rabbits from ailing hats. Humorists, just like physicians, touch with their magic pen nibs wherever they perceive a sore spot.
I know many talented physicians engaged in humor. Most of the time, I see them find joy in the therapeutic environment of humor either due to similarities of humor to their occupation or to find temporary relief from the burden of their holy occupations.
Cartoon, humor with drawing lines, at times look a little scratchy just as the prescriptions of physicians, however, both have the same mission of enabling the recipient enjoy life and be happy.
Now you flip through the pages of the book and have a look at prescriptions written by Halis Dokgöz drawn with lines.
I hope you'll get better soon and enjoy good health and happiness.

"Cartoon" is a disease. Halis Dokgöz has lived nested with this disease for years. He makes the necessary intervention when the fever increases. Everybody knows that this is a hopeless case and an incurable disease. I hope that this album helps him cope with the disease. I hope you'll get better soon.

I met Halis in 1989 when he published his first album "Where sun doesn't enter"...
His cartoons were like autopsy of problems, mostly from the medical world... of doctors... of patients...
It's been 25 years...
Halis became an associate professor in forensic medicine... still drawing...
In this new book, he even cuts deeper...
As if he is conducting an autopy alive...
