Ashik Nazeer’s illustration of his lockdown life are our lives also
And what more, we are dealing with the same characters
We have entered the third month of the lockdown. Looking back (or ahead), everything is a blur. Weekends have merged into weekdays, office into home, calendar has become redundant, and so have our best clothes, shoes and accessories. Now, our lives are bed, all things kitchen (with piles of unwashed dishes), mop and broom, wifi connection, and yes, couch. So when Bangalore-based designer Ashik Nazeer illustrated his lockdown stories, the lead characters were a bed-turned-workstation, struggles with baking but success with omelettes, a basin turned salon, his girlfriend’s out-of-job lipsticks and yes, couch—pretty much summarising all our lives in the lockdown. Some illustrations have an eerie element lurking in them, like a poster for horror movie, which also in some ways underlines our lives in the lockdown.
