I am Irina, a designer from San Francisco. It's the end of November, and it's hard to believe we are still in the global pandemic and cases are still going up in San Francisco. With holidays coming up, we have more time to reflect on how the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our lives forever.

Since day one, drawing has been a way to blow off stress and share some laughs with others. I work (from home) as a designer during the day, and spend my nights drawing. One day, I just grabbed a piece of paper and started doodling. Lately, I've switched to drawing on an iPad and doing some simple animations to bring drawings to life. I called the series Covid Life, focused on everyday struggles and how almost every aspect of life has been affected―from eating, traveling, shopping, celebrating with family, and so on.

I thought and hoped the pandemic would be over soon, but it keeps on dragging along. I also thought I would run out of ideas, but they are still coming! This is my 3rd post, hope you enjoy these. This is my 3rd post, hope you enjoy these. You can find my previous posts here and here

I mean, since we spend most of our time inside and do work online (most of us), internet is basically a necessity.

My refrigerator has looked more like the first photo. My cabinets too. Not only due to lack of funds do I find myself eating things that I had bought months ago but I never got an appetite for, I avoid shopping until it's absolutely necessary.

Imagine just dying, and waiting at the gates of heaven like 'Let me in!!!!' while zoom keeps on rolling. Then it kicks you out and you are plunged in the dark void of space.

In zoom meeting if someone gets asked a question they would pretend to freeze by not moving. Before they blink they would turn off their cameras and type in "sorry, my internet commutation isn't stable"
