We were wearing down the treads of our shoes and psyches from walking in our neighborhood. A recent social media post about a labyrinth from a friend forced us to change - or escape - our scenery. We took our shoes and our psyches on a trek to find the mythical labyrinth. We found it on our third trip to the park. Three is a charm.
My crazy-covid days have been swinging wildly between chaos and order. This whimsy illustration shows a typical day in my current life - and sometimes I don't even realise the day I am on!
I have ended up with new routines and a newer meaning to my mantra 'one day at a time!' But I am so thankful I have my time to draw and create - that's my happy space where I connect, explore and discover something new every day.
Thanks TDAT for this wonderful prompt to map my moment - I think I am going to frame my own art and recall this strange time and say 'Yay! I survived!' :)
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!
My life living in locked-down London during the Corona-virus. The Central London area is geographically accurate, but I have sculpted the letters “London” into it. Conversely, the roads, and my journey are not accurately depicted - merely illustrated (where I shop will remain my secret!)
My current reality is walking. Walking and walking and walking my neighborhood. I see the changes that people are making to their homes and the flowers that are starting to bloom. The trees have gone from sticks covered with snow to green buds. The birds are new and the wildlife is preparing for their new families. I listen to podcast and wave to my neighbors. This moment holds a lot of beauty.
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!
During my time at home during COVID-19 in 2020, I’ve spent a lot of time researching recipes, finding recipes for the ingredients I have in the house, and on Zoom or online meetings. This illustration is a fun expression of both for the Mapping This Moment theme.
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.
