C-19 visual diary
For those of us who work from home.
Work-life has blurred with the personal, no more 8-to-5, no meetings at Starbucks, no leaving the office behind‑Work follows US around, in the kitchen, the living room, the studio… I suppose that over time I’ll learn how to close the computer after a certain time, how to stop checking emails at each ring, and how to ignore that last request…
As I learn to divide my attention between work and family, I have to make space for another big presence from these past few weeks: The News. Reading articles, watching updates, scanning social media for the latest update, in the hope not to find any, has become an addiction. One day I will wake up reading “All CLEAR” in big letters; until then I will make sketches to capture what is happening in the world. I don’t know how many drawings will follow, but here is the first one, for Saturday the 21st of March.
