Inspired by the current situation in New York City, and indeed around the world to varying degrees, these illustrations are portraying how it feels to be quarantined, and isolated. Kept at a distance from our fellow human beings, and even separated from our close friends and family for our own good.

“Everything I have been reading lately starts with "Due to COVID-19.. IT IS CANCELLED...It is time to be sensible and inspire each other.”

Like many of her other illustrations, music was one of the leading forces for Melody Hesaraky while creating these illustrations, although this time it was music listened to while at home, and through a pair of headphones.

She believes that even though we may be separated for a time, art can inspire us and bring us together, even in these most difficult of times.
