It's been a wild, chaotic, crazy, messy, painful, beautiful year and I don't want to forget it.
COVID19 has changed my world, changed our world, it's absolutely rocked things and I believe it's changed absolutely everything.
I was talking to Sarah about going home for Christmas and I was annoyed, annoyed at COVID, annoyed that things just aren't easy that I have to think more about my decisions and can't just go and see everyone I like.
Yet I reflected on COVID and the opportunities it has afforded me too, more time, more space, more creativity, whilst it's taken a lot away and caused a lot of pain and suffering as well.
I don't think the world will ever be the same again, so much has changed around our awareness of mental health, socia injustice, racial inequality - loads has changed, forever and I want to remember that, even though it has been incredibly difficult and painful too.
I started doodling with this one and watned to capture the layers, the mess, the interlinking, connecting nature of the world and COVID and I wanted to see what it would look like, would it look beautiful? Would it look OK, would it look weird?
Here's what I ended up with. A linking, chaotic, layered concoction of COVID and all it has changed and created for us.
The print is A4 on Hahnemühle German Etching paper like all my others. I sign it on the back in pencil and write a unique message with each one too :)
The frame isn't included in the price, but shipping is!
To a year to remember, or not...
