Overview
A comedic, illustrated, and unapologetic memoir to look back and remember our first unprecedented year of COVID-19, in a different light. Yes, there were challenges, and there were also triumphs to be celebrated. This book surely doesn't forget those. Along with each cartoon, comes a time-stamped reflection of whatever was flipping the world on its head that day. Some snapshots are happy. Some are sad. Some are hilarious. Summed up, it's truly a diary of the coronavirus that everyone can relate to. Everyone's coping mechanism was different. Mine happened to be cartoons. As abruptly as our world came to a screeching halt, my foray back into drawing began. Art has always been my passion, but life got in the way for a decade. To bring some humor and for my own therapy, I began cartooning in lockstep with the world changing daily. With nearly every week of the pandemic changing our cultural norms, I continued chronicling our evolution as a society. After sharing a few cartoons on social media and getting such a great response and momentum, the collection started to build. Here we are, our first year of COVID-19 over, and I'm ready to share them with the world. Keep this book on your coffee table, in the bathroom, or as a guidebook for the next (year of this) pandemic. A keepsake with perspective that all adults won't soon forget.
