Mapping This Moment: Getting Through a Pandemic in the 21st Century by Caroline Whelan

Chicoutimi, Qu├ębec, CA


My illustration features what has helped me get through the pandemic thus far. As I was creating this piece, I got to thinking about what has changed in terms of how people have managed to get through past pandemics. Some things may not have changed, such as washing your hands and wearing a mask, but one thing that has definitely helped make things easier is technology. It is now easier than ever to communicate with people from all over the world. I realize not everyone has access to technology, so I am truly grateful that I can have video calls with my family and friends every week, to help keep me sane.
