The Art Students League is proud to present its first official comics anthology, “This Quarantine Life: A COVID-19 Era Comics Anthology,” edited by instructors Steven Walker and Greg Follender.
The year is 2020 and the world has changed in the face of a global health crisis. In this anthology you will find stories by 76 artists-in-quarantine from all over the world–New York, Australia, China, Bahrain, Czech Republic, Italy, Japan and more. This book is a snapshot of an important time in history, filtered through the lens of these artists and imbued with all their insights, concerns, anxieties and passions.
“The stories by the students of the comics medium are thoughtful and energetic. They’re taking the times we’re currently living in and, as some of the best storytellers often do, present us with something heartfelt and deeply personal.” —Inkpot Award-winning artists Jamal Igle, from his introduction
