The Pandemic by Geoff McFetridge

These incredible illustrations document how Geoff McFetridge, and many of us, are feeling about the current pandemic and lockdown. The works were created as a piece for the New York Times.

In my neighborhood, the sidewalks are filled with people I’ve never seen before, masked and staying six feet apart. These are not the regular runners or dog walkers. These are couples and families out for a walk together.
One of the appeals of living in Los Angeles is the suburban normalness of my everyday life.
Weeks into the current situation, waves of weirdness continue to erode the familiar rhythms of my world.
Much of my day has remained the same.
But enough has changed to make time feel disassembled.
The days and nights feel like a strange version of normal.
Last week, one of our daughter’s teachers died of the virus. We got the news inside our home, which suddenly felt less like a refuge and more like a bunker.
When this is over, I don’t want the traffic to come back. I want all this extra time with my family. I want to hold on to this quietness.
I want to see people walking our streets and not feel that their presence is somehow related to the world’s falling apart.
