Prague before Corona

1 May

These drawings were done on a university trip to Prague for the BA Illustration course that I teach on at Portsmouth (UK). Prague is a visual feast in many ways and I felt the push and pull of history on the city and its people. It is both deeply European and something more eastern. Something medieval, stern and cold inhabits the residents but like most cultures, a few cold beers or the shared experience of art breaks down barriers. I don’t consider these drawings to be my best reportage works and I was not there with serious drawing in mind. Still, I hope they capture something of this magical city. Two weeks after we left, the world shut down. Enjoy!
