Where do you want to go?

Our routines have changed in a way they never have before. What does your perfect day look like now? If the days are getting all too samey I like to make myself an itinerary... like being on holiday but in my own house. I set times to visit certain areas, to do certain activities, to (video) meet with friends. It helps me stay positive.
My neighbours are at the same time close and yet far away – everybody stays at home and tries to find pleasure in activities that are usually more fun together, like making music, doing yoga, baking cakes for a birthday invitation and travelling – which has been replaced by dreaming of places. Hopefully everything will be well soon. (I put the phrase in Italian on the map since it became famous when Italy was hit hard by the virus in March).
We all are facing same situation, entire world is living same life. Rather it's India or Italy, New York or Singapore there is one thing common which is hope. In this lockdown period when I look outside I find different people in the balcony. They are attractive, hopeful and looking forward to have a better tomorrow.
During the pandemic, as many of my friends were watching Contagion and the like, I wanted to create a list of what I consider a) better and b) more fitting movies for the moment. So here it is, in all its incomplete glory!
The map I created is the Italian vacation we are supposed to be on right now. It is someplace I've always wanted to go. We planned this well before Covid-19 was a household word. I thought I was going to be really upset while drawing this, but in actuality, it was uplifting and gave me great pleasure in creating it. I can't believe that it took me 2 weeks to illustrate it.Check out @beeminedesigns to see the video time lapse to see what I did to create this. Thanks @theydrawandtravel!
My life as a freelance illustrator hasn't changed too much after lockdown as I always worked from home. I did feel stressed and down at the beginning but I accepted the anxiety and kept going. With more restrictions on what I am able to do outdoor, my life goes on almost entirely in our house. My husband works from home now, he made his own standing desk from a cardboard box and table on table, I now train weekly martial art on zoom instead of going to the gym(nice to see faces of friends and be able to keep training), wisteria and our hair keep growing without a haircut, and our neighbour's cat still visits us but spends more time on our bed! Despite the pandemic, the life seems peaceful inside our house.
In this illustration, I have depicted the everyday life during this lockdown, and how the devices have sort of filled our lives. During this social distancing phase where we don’t get to meet most of our friends and family, our lives are increasingly revolving around the digital devices and gadgets, mostly our phones. I have illustrated the many ways in which we use our phones on a daily basis, in a chronological sequence.
I love grocery shopping, it's therapeutic. And heading to the neighbourhood supermarket is probably the most 'exciting' moment in my life these days. In Singapore, the new normal now is having to put on masks, have our IDs scanned and temperature checked before we're allowed into the supermarkets. It's also interesting to observe what everyone is buying these days to stock up at home. Stuff that people used to panic buy - eggs, hand sanitizer, toilet paper - are now fully stocked. Instead, kimchi, pasta and baking goods are flying off the shelves. It's also a bummer that everyone else loves sour cream and onion chips as much as I do. What are people stocking up on in your area, and what are your personal essential items to tide you through this stay home period? Keep a safe distance and stay healthy!
Quarantine life looks different for all of us. For me, a stay at home mom and freelance artist there have been lots of highs and lows. I know I’m not cut out to be a home school teacher but I do bake a mean banana bread and jalapeño chips will forever remind of this moment in time.
Shall I go to the left or shall I go to the right? This is the only decision that I have to make in the last two months depending if I just go for a walk or have to buy something. The map shows my neighborhood and the places I’m visiting during the lockdown.
