Goodbye, London – for now, see you soon, 18th March 2020

One last sketch.

Piccadilly Circus, London, England, 18th March 2020

The atmosphere in London was so different; its usual energy had been replaced by a sense of uncertainty. Walking home to the Tube station that day, passing the sights and landmarks of one of the greatest cities on Earth, it was odd to see them mostly quiet. I decided to stop at Piccadilly Circus and draw quickly on my iPhone whilst I savoured this scene, as I don’t know when I’d be able to come back again. Like many others, I’ve been told to work from home until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak. See you soon, London.
