Corona Annual

I was inspired by pop artists who used comic strips as part of their art. During lockdown I read 'The Dandy' every day, it really cheered me up, so I chose this as my inspiration. I love comedy and I wanted to create something a little bit cheeky that said something about the times I was living in. I replaced some of the faces with the people that were always in the news and added some facemasks – just for safety! Using Photoshop, I rearranged the letters 'The Dandy' to create the word Corona (it amazed me how closely the two words matched).
