Little Guy is a series of 25 images and poems that emerged over a period of two weeks, with a sense of urgency. Then, less than a month later, coronavirus appeared in the UK. We had to distance from each other; isolate, alone at home in a situation none of us has ever faced before. The rush to get Little Guy onto paper started to make sense.
Many people battle with anxiety even in the best of circumstances; it is part of being a sensitive, fragile human being in a world that can be both frightening and full of wonder.
Little Guy starts off anxious and depressed, before moving through hope and trust to a point where he is able to relate to the world and thrive again.
Little Guy journeys with us.
The images and haiku-like poems are useful starting points for conversation.
