Studio Life During Covid-19 Part 3

We finally started getting some projections on the severity and length of the pandemic this week and have had to think about the idea that this is going to be a marathon, not a sprint. With that in mind, I moved to a schedule of doing the Covid-19 Sketchbook drawings three days per week and posting them on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.

I was interviewed on the CBC Homestretch April 2nd about the drawings however I don’t see any links on their website for the segment so unfortunately I can’t share that with you.

However CBC Calgary shared 8 more images on their instagram account.

And Ellie McIntosh also featured one of the images in her latest Vlog post on the importance of creativity in times like these.

Speaking of videos, I got the Covid-19 Sketchbook Tour video uploaded on Saturday (only a day late, thanks to working non-stop until 3 am).

We are almost there with getting reproductions of the Covid-19 drawings up for sale. I have suppliers who can do the job, a list of the top images people would like to have, and price points. I just need to figure out how to set up a pre-sale ordering process on my website now and we should be good to go, so keep an eye out for that on the Covid-19 Chronicles page.

This week we welcomed one more Sunflower Project participant, with #58 (4 of the 12 days of Christmas series) going out to her. Another participant wrote to me about the project that she is starting as her way to share her 1000 gifts. I am going to be really excited to share that with you if she sends me updates or pictures of what she does!

#58

Until next week. Stay safe and stay healthy!
