Pandemic (cover illustration for Dark Matter Magazine issue 001)
For the inaugural issue of Dark Matter Magazine, I was commissioned to create a cover image that referenced the current pandemic. The world is going through life changing and tragic times right now—so many people sickened in such a short period of time with way too many deaths. When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit there was chaos and uncertainty—it felt like we were all being blindly led to some kind of alien slaughter. But in the midst of all the fear, there were those men and women among us who chose to stand up, let their fear pass over and through them so they could set out and meet the daunting challenge before them. That’s my take on what I tried to express with this image. We all have different interpretations of the images we encounter. What might the image bring to your mind? Stay safe.
