The Lockdown Diaries

The Lockdown Diaries is a personal research project that revolves around human relationships in the time of Covid-19. It's a story I wrote about 7 different people in 5 different circumstances, going through the covid lockdown and dealing with everything that comes with. I illustrated it and collated it all into an interactive website. The website is unfortunately no longer active.
