LOCKDOWN GRAPHICS 2021
Lockdown Graphics 2021 are a set of 3 illustrated books about being alive and ‘normal’ during the familiar ordeal of social isolation and distance.
They are about feeling feelings, and that being ok. The easy graphics and minimal text directs them to all readers open to illustration as a means in itself for suggestion and simple story telling.
These short books represent a snapshot of the current lockdown mindset for many everyday people. They are intended to reflect the mundanity, monotony and seeming absurdity of staying at home and doing very little in our usual busy, task driven world. They are an ordinary yet poignant illustration of isolation and how it is getting to us third time around.
The chosen illustration style for these books is direct and largely unedited. A poetic stream of consciousness.
