Artist Illustrates Villains Giving Advice On How To Fight COVID-19
While the fight with the invisible enemy COVID-19 is far from over, we need to do everything in our power to prevent the virus from spreading further. Moscow-based illustrator Anastasia Panina, better known as Anastasia in Red on her social media accounts, decided to create humorous illustrations of famous horror movie characters giving advice on how to fight the virus. Compared to other instructions on social media, these ones are engaging, humorous, and thus fun to read!
This series is called “Villains against COVID-19” and it features classic horror movie characters such as Pennywise, Freddy Krueger, Samara, Hannibal Lecter, and many more. The artist says that she created these illustrations when she was really upset about the news of coronavirus, so she wanted to distract herself from negative thoughts and lift the mood for all horror movie fans.
“I was really upset by the news of COVID, especially when it came to my country. I looked at various infographics about precautions and prevention, and it seemed terribly boring to me. Then, to distract from negative thoughts and slightly improve the mood of myself and other horror fans, I decided to create my own anti-COVID tips which would be memorable and definitely not boring. At first, I was going to draw only 5 works, but since these illustrations got such an incredible response and spread on the internet, in the end, I made 9 pieces,” says the artist to Bored Panda.
