A fun twist to the pandemic when most of my work got cancelled!
Reigate is a vibrant market town, very close to where I live, full of restaurants, bistros, cafes, boutique shops and entertainment. It has a beautiful park for all sorts of activities, which hosts outdoor cinema in the summer and an ice rink in the winter. It nestles under the Surrey Hills and the North Downs way for hiking. It is only half an hour from London and less than an hour to the sea!
Frankfurt has a long tradition of selling fresh products on the streets. There have been farmers' markets in Frankfurt since the 12th century. The map shows six of the overall 20 farmers' markets, which exist in the city of Frankfurt nowadays. Each district has its own one an a particular day of the week from Tuesday to Saturday.
During the quarantine, my kitchen table has become a gathering place for all of the things that are a part of my new daily routine.
"Mapping this moment" of continuously changing feelings. From anxiety to hope, from creativity to despair.
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.
During lockdown I started illustrated joyful moments to keep the family spirit up and running. Every little detail of this household map is linked with a special moment during lockdown from turning a melon into a bumblebee, to watching pigeons showering in the rain, playing music and learning new skills.
What a strange time to be alive! Combating boredom and anxiety during the COVID-19 quarantine turns into a long, slow game of chance, luck, and risk. Will you run out of toilet paper or milk before you can draw a supply card? Will you get lost down the black hole of Animal Crossing? Will your mental health survive before you can find a therapist who does Zoom appointments? Find out in this adventure where no one's a winner.
Spending time together has become so much more meaningful during this time of isolation, that we’ve spent in our studio. From watering plants to feeding birds that stop by, boundaries of work and leisure have merged to make this a truly memorable (quaran)time.
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).
