Living under the Covid-19 black cloud, we were in a state of flux.

My work conveys the first escape of the virus in panel 1. Dr Li in Wuhan, Italians singing from their balconies.
In panel 2 Tibetan prayer flags, the MCG, queues outside Centrelink, drive through testing labs.
Panel 3 cruise ships docked, baking and sharing, diving into love, fear and the unveiling and revealing.
