In the upcoming weeks, our task is to spend time in our homes in isolation. At the same time, it is important to pay more attention to each other and our environment. Perhaps we keep closer contact with our loved ones and the world than ever before...
Although Malcolm Fisher’s block stories were not inspired by the current virus situation, we still think of it as a relevant and nice illustration series that we wanted to share with you, too.
Which one do you like the most?
The “Story Block” series comes from the artist’s enthusiasm for Brutalist architecture. It depicts belonging to a community and the diversity of relationships. We can only see the stories of the characters displayed on the illustrations through the windows, which demonstrates the intimate and personal nature of the pictures vividly.
I used the window as a framework to record the brief moments of our days: love, loss, friendship, new beginnings
– adds Malcolm.
To our greatest joy, the touching block stories have not come to an end yet: the creator plans to introduce new characters, which he would like to compile in the form of a zine or a book in the near future.
