Everybody’s Home Illustrations
As part of the Everybody’s Home Kit, we commissioned a series of enlightening illustrations to feature as part of a colouring book, postcards, a time capsule, a DIY comic book and a home puppet theatre.
They were created with the intention to help people feel a little bit better whilst isolating, whilst also supporting artists.
We felt it was important to capture the impact on society during the Covid-19 situation but to also look at the positive aspects that the pandemic brought about our communities.
Each one of the illustrations has captured a unique period of time, leaving a social record.
Some of the illustrations represent the unfamiliar in a familiar setting, for example, Seanna Doonan’s illustration of Mansfield market place.
Others depict the impact that Covid-19 had on our social lives, healthcare workers and key workers.
Bright and colourful, all of these illustrations give praise to what would often be overlooked in days before Covid. They acknowledge the struggle and provide a light, creative relief from the hardships that the pandemic threw at us.
The new normal
Jeffoworks captured the mood with his colour-bursting illustrations depicting a Thursday evening ritual and how, in some instances, the streets were reclaimed by the wildlife.
