Where do you want to go?
Found 119 Illustrations
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.
I started this map before lockdown, initially showing some interesting places to visit. I live in the CBD. Auckland and NZ is heavily reliant on tourism. The outline of the boat in the harbour is a ghost as are the hotels in the city. We are on level 2 alert, so things are almost back to normal. 49 known active cases in our country today, 16th May, out of 5 million inhabitants.No group gatherings of more than 10 are permitted, with the exemption of funerals. This is probably not quite to brief, but here I am. My first map.
Just as this season reminds to be thankful for smallest parts of my life, so I begin to notice the tiny beauties living close to my home: vibrant flowers, jack rabbits, snail trails.
