This is an illustration of a sick SARS-CoV-2 virus. I created it during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. As people were trying to figure out how to move past the caronavirus, the idea of the virus getting sick from our immune systems fighting back against the virus popped in my head. With a fever of its own, the virus is sweating and has a thermometer hanging out of its mouth.
This illustration is a variant of the base illustration, that can be found here.
Most of the time, I use an iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil and the application Procreate to create digital artwork. I like this combination because it is like having a digital sketchpad that you can carry around with you fairly easily at all times. It is easy to use wherever you like, at a table, on a couch, while lying in bed, outside sitting in the shade, and so on.
