twists and turns – covidcard no. 104

I drew covidcard no.104 during snatched moments over a few days. It was only after I finished the drawing—although, I’m never quite sure when any of these drawings are ever quite finished—that I discovered the Al Jazeera article about COVID-19 in Singapore. The story seemed a good fit for the drawing.

“We are on a path of transition to a new normal of living with COVID-19,” Health Minister Ong Ye Kung told a virtual press conference on Friday. “It is a journey that is uncertain and full of twists and turns.” – Al Jazeera, 20 September 2021.
