In times of global crisis, I believe artists have a calling to try to visually describe their experiences for various purposes - to comfort, to validate, to support, to show solidarity, to inspire, to entertain. This new series of small drawings speaks to my experience of staying in my apartment in Barcelona, Spain, without leaving for over 60 days during the challenging time of the coronavirus. March - May 2020 /// UPDATE: As the pandemic remains a global threat, and the safest place to stay is indeed at home, I have decided to reopen this series. July 2020
