ABOUT

Homebodies is an interpretation of my thoughts, a way to articulate feelings and a visualisation of wider moments that affected everyone throughout the past year. It became a moody toned digital art exploration where amusingly the illustrations emerged as structures despite the year having little to no structure at all. This illustration project was submitted as part of the Young at Art installation. 
"A QUIET CITY"
 

Walking around town during lockdown. The drive down to work the night before lockdown.
The silence you could feel radiating from the normally bustling city.
"THE HOME BODY"

The original inspiration for the project. While stuck inside I wanted to draw something that embodied the term home body. Quite literally a home body. 
"Locked down"
 

Staying home to stay safe. Confined to your own four walls - physically and mentally. Trapped in your mind, while trapped in your house.  
"PARASITE"
 

That feeling of being out of control, something else is in control. Overwhelming thoughts taking over the mind. 
"MELTDOWN"

The bottling up for it to all meltdown in a couple months time. Emotional outbursts.
"THE BUILD. THE FALL."

Progress. Building myself & my life up. Don't look at it as falling apart but building up. Finding that positive spin. 
"AT THE CENTRE OF IT ALL"

Community built around a collective spirit. Working together to get through hardship.
"Check on YOUR FRIENDs"
Making sure to check on your pals. Not alone in your struggles. Ask them how they're doing, pay them a visit.
"Standing out"
Feeling lonely. Like burning up & everyone around you is doing fine. Burdening those around me with the fall out.
"ARE YOU LOOKING AFTER YOUR HOUSE?"
Your body is your house, look after it. Listen to yourself.
"DINOSAUR"
For 2020s real MVP. Strongest dinosaur I know.
"REFLECTION"

What you see in the mirror isn't always as bad in real life. Hating what you see in the mirror.
"Chaos in the city"
A look at how the world is in chaos. 
"♥"
Appreciating all the love & good vibes as well. And a bit of the heartbreak too.  
"DROWNING"
World's underwater.
"BIG CITY"
Lost in the shuffle.
