What a great way to share some fun advice through artwork! These cartoon comics created by Becky Allen definitely brought a smile to my face, while imparting some quality tips that will keep me (Rashmeet) going throughout this isolation.
Becky is full time Graphic Designer and Illustrator from London ON who grew up on Disney and knew from a young age that all she wanted to do in life was doodle cartoons.
My motto is that I believe art has the power to change the world.– Becky Allen
In response to what Becky has been making during this isolation she replied, “At the end of March I created a series of 5 quick cartoony illustrations of funny tips to help make the best of isolation. As a self-proclaimed hermit I thought these light-hearted comics could help people from some brightness through the tough times and maybe my experience with isolation could help. I also offered two free virtual cartooning classes for adults and kids as a way to provide some fun activities for families during this time.”
Becky has been making her comics because she “Just want[s] to help people with [her] silly comics with laughter and brightness. Art helps us tell stories and connects us in way nothing else can. So it was just [her] way of letting people know they weren’t alone. And if there were any tips [she] could pass on as an introvert who has worked from home the last 3 years that could help people adjust, then that was definitely a bonus.”
