Isolation Illustration

Unlimited-commissioned artist, Thompson Hall, shares his thoughts and drawings from isolation.

I have now been self-isolating at home for two weeks. This was since Boris Johnson asked people to stay at home to help stop the spread of the coronavirus.

I live at home with my Mother and younger brother in a flat in Central London.  I am trying to keep myself busy.  I have been watching TV, drawing, tidying my room and catching up with some of the chores I never usually have time to do.

Luckily, my family is well.  I hope it will continue that way.

Being at home all the time is frustrating as I like to go out.  I usually spend my days out visiting galleries and museums, sketching, and getting inspiration for my artwork.

Words like 'anxiety,' 'isolation,' 'confusion,' 'chaos,' and 'emergency' are written in green boxes, small illustrated bacteria are dotted across the page

The situation has left me feeling very restricted in what I can do. It’s something I’ve never experienced before in my life, but I am slowly getting used to it.

I realise this is for my own benefit and to keep my family and friends safe.
