I recently showcased a number of drawings and digital illustrations I produced through lockdown on Cast theatre’s website.

The series of drawings I produced, I think anyone would identify with through the stages of this year. I remember a few blokes confiding in me about shopping for toilet roll and feeling scared of panic buying and trudging across town with toilet rolls. Quite naturally I drew how Coronavirus took hold of us, hence how I arrived at drawing “The Last Toilet Roll” a homage to the “Last Supper”.

Prior to lockdown I think one of my fave drawings I’ve done this year is a bearded chap’s head cradled in a hand with lots of flora and fauna in the mix. Ironic because weeks later masses of people sought sanctuary within garden spaces through lockdown.
