Lockdown Art

The Lockdown Lookout
‘The Lockdown Lookout’ Created by Ian Parson when the whole world was on standby, May ’20

Staying home is not as simple as you’d think. It’s been difficult for all of us. Lying in bed, watching daytime television and generally wasting the hours away, eventually, like having Christmas every day, gets boring.

Lockdown from Covid19 has provided an opportunity for creativity.

The novel I’ve been working on seems irrelevant now. Its about a disaster, I don’t feel like writing it whilst a real, far worse disaster is roaming the streets. Yet I wanted to use at least some of the lockdown time creatively.

'Masks are the new Black' by Ian Parson
In March 2020 British people started wearing masks in public. By April they were common. It was unnerving at first, perfectly in fitting with the vibe created by Covid19.

In the end I opted to go back to basics. Create art, not in its written form, but using good old fashioned paper and pencil.

Hope you like them.
