An enemy you can’t see is almost undefeated unless he or she can’t see you as well. This simple artwork was inspired by my idleness in the time I was stuck home. I thought I ought to do something with an awareness objective towards COVID 19. In my mind, these were the words for inspiration “idle, stuck at home, fear, stillness”. I drew inspiration by combining all these words into one image with a thousand words. Some of which are:

      • To fight this invisible enemy we have had to stay home
      • The only thing we could do to defeat the enemy was to do nothing (the poster itself looks
        like nothing was done)
      • The fear that was gripping people brought darkness in their lives
      • Live lost were worlds being shuttered, jobs were lost

Even if the world has turned dark for us we ought to play our part to invite some light back into our worlds.
