Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March, 2020, I have been keeping a daily visual journal, tracking my highs and lows and expressing my joys and my fears. Some of these drawings are funny. Some sad. Some outraged. Some mundane. Some political. Some intensely personal… Sharing these images with friends and family has fostered a sense of community and shared experience. (It has also helped me learn how to draw on an ipad). Below are some sample drawings.
