Quarantine Doodling

Inspired by the over-information that is available at the moment, I tried to express my feeling in lines. The core of the drawing is supposed to be my brain, confused and tired of the news. The background is a representation of the numerous transmitters around me. This drawing was developed over the first week of my Quarantine when I was still feeling very overwhelmed and scared. As it is normal I am now a bit more accustomed to this new situation and thus more chilled.

Ha. I just made a new word.

After a good 2 weeks of isolation, the only inspiration I have is the surroundings.

I just sat at the balcony and observed.

People say that dolphins and whales are back at the surface of the seas.

Day 8- Quarantine Covid-19

Today I saw one person.

From a distance, always from a distance.

I made him something.

I will never see him again, but he was an exciting moment for today.

I have a great view through the balcony of this house, I can even look about a kilometer away and down the street. This person was about 500meters away… He was the only person my eye could track for about 15 minutes, then, there was a taxi and a  motorbike… but no pedestrians.

I realized he was a cop. I don’t like cops.

I made him something.
