Illustrator | Sep 2021
The theme of the first issue of The Rosa was the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the first lock-down imposed due to pandemic restrictions, we were socially distant and found many barriers and boundaries between us, loved ones and our communities at large. But we also found some of these boundaries to be erased–particularly the ones between our professional and personal spaces.
With these illustrations, I wanted to explore this erasure, and the suffocation it made us feel through ruthless deadlines, meetings, and new platforms–contributing to overall fatigue.
