Covid 19 – You Twat!

FacebookTwitter

Isn’t it strange times, one we are sharing with the whole world. It is also a worrying time for several reasons. I worry for my elderly mum who has COPD, asthma and high blood pressure. She also lives in London. I worry for my fellow disabled artists, many of whom have underlying conditions. I try not to think about how many we will lose. Hopefully none, fingers crossed. I have lost work, as have many freelance creatives. I am personally not bothered about staying at home, I am an introvert and I have so many things on my to do list which I have put off for months that I can concentrate on.

Nobody knows how this crisis will play out. It is horrible, but I have my usual compulsion to create, to bring humour to things. To that end I have created some greeting cards to reflect these weird times.

Greetings card which has a picture of toilet roll and says wishing you find some toilet roll

Greetings card which reads thanks for finally washing your hands you dirty bastard

But also something serious too – a card for those I am far away from but love.

Greetings card which reads coronavirus makes you red, you know what to do. There is no social distancing in my heart, because I love you

This crisis is a litmus test for society, whether it rises to the challenge or crawls on its dirty knees.  This is an opportunity for ugliness or beauty of the human spirit to show itself. I hope in the beauty. If we can’t look after each other, what’s the point in society?

Take care people x

“If we can’t look after each other, what’s the point in society?” So true Dolly x
