Drawing in the times of coronavirus: nothing is stopping us

I find myself chained by the constant pulse of my four walls, unable to breathe deeply. The current COVID-19 situation might be rather trying, yet inspirational 

The need for compulsory isolation has never been much of a burden for me. Yet, this time, it feels different. The atmosphere appears somewhat unknown. We can feel it all around. The mysterious void, the urge to witness the end of it, or, the need to avoid the inevitable, no matter what it is eventually.

Many of us are experiencing unusually vivid dreams. Many are evaluating and contemplating their lives. The pulse of our cities has ceased to control us, and we all have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to look around. Some are waking up from lethargy; others come to the realization that there is nothing to see after all.

Pro tip: I use Micron pens for my drawings

More than ever it is important to fill our time as well as the empty pages with the lines of our pens. New creations, revisions of the already conducted. I don’t know when this will end. I don’t know whether this will end. But when should we immerse into the process if not now? 

Obligatory quarantine is a unique opportunity for each of us. Let’s express everything that has gathered and evolved inside of us. Let’s create.
