How Can We Look Out for One Another in Today’s Society?

The theme for my illustration is “Together”- I’m drawn to the need for compassion, warmth and togetherness in a society that can feel cold, threatening and unwelcoming, particularly to the disadvantaged and especially in times of COVID and isolation. I want people to remember how important connection is for our own mental health and for others, and to think about how we can reach out to people and stick together during tough times.
