This Artist Began Drawing These Comics About His Family Every Day During The Lockdown

According to an artist Karl Whiteley: “I was looking forward to going to some job interviews in March. But COVID-19 has hit a pause button on those plans and my social life as well. So I decided to do something for myself, about myself, and my family. It turned out to be a pretty valuable project as a creative professional. For the first time since my studies, I was able to explore my ideas freely. The opportunity was golden. And hence, my Lockdown Reflections were born, which I drew each day. I picked a round number, 100, and off I went.” Continue reading »

Spider Wins in New Lockdown Wildlife Photo Competition 2020

In what is no doubt a world first, the Isolation Wildlife Photography Awards was set up to showcase wildlife photos and video created during a global lockdown. The winners have now been announced, celebrating what photographers can achieve when faced with a rather unusual creative challenge.

The competition aimed to encourage keen photographers to engage with wildlife “on their doorstep,” such as in a back garden or even within the home.

Overall Winner – Wildlife in Your Home – Basement Predators – Luca Eberle
Spider Wins in New Lockdown Wildlife Photo Competition 2020

A prodigious climber and phlegmatic twilight hunter, the Zoropsis spinimana spends most of the day hidden under rocks, barks and sometimes even behind the furniture of our homes, and then starts the hunting activity at night. Unlike many other spiders, it does not weave the web but hunts in ambush, making lightning-fast sprints that leave no escape for the small invertebrates it feeds on. It is a generally shy and non-aggressive species, the bite (used only if surrounded or in the presence of offspring) has an effect similar to a bee sting.
