Sketching Brunswick Street, Fitzroy incognito: masks, 2 hours and a 5km limit

Fitzroy Library Exhibition 13 Nov 2020 to 31 Jan 2021:  Display Case 11

As lockdown 2 started to settle, and we were allowed out of our homes, I headed back to the top end of Brunswick Street. I wanted to illustrate the impact of the pandemic on the local community. I sat under a verandah at the corner of Westgarth Street and drew locals chatting on a mosaic chair. We were all wearing masks. Some things don’t change though. The building housed a butcher’s shop back in 1925 and it still does today.
