My artwork shows two shops opening for the first time since the start of the lockdown. I wanted my drawing to show society returning to some altered sense of normality, whilst still hinting at the profound effect that Coronavirus has had on the country. The two people in the drawing are acknowledging each other while remaining apart, which links to the feelings of isolation and detachment that many have felt during the lockdown. There is also an emphasis on the necessary social distancing measures. My drawings are influenced by the visual style of popular comic artists like Tim Sale.
