Lockdown Cartoon #43: Time Difference

  • Post author:
  • Post category:Cartoon
The Coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we work.
The pandemic forced me to run my art workshop online, which was outside my comfort zone. But once I’ve done it, I realised there are whole new possibilities out there. Now I can reach out to people who live on the other side of the world and help them learn Japanese art, anytime.

But I need to be aware of one thing – time differences.  I have to make sure I don’t get the time wrong like I did in my first online workshop!
Here is this week’s cartoon.
Artist and children’s author Noriko Matsubara documents her family's experience during COVID-19 lockdown with relatable cartoons.
