Lockdown, With Cats is a book of artwork created by Yeju Kwon with the hope of comforting contemporary people who deal with stress and anxiety. The theme of this book is centred around living in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic and it aims to depict the tone of current daily life that we are all experiencing. Yeju aims to portray feelings of safety and peace in her drawings and she hopes that the use of cats in her drawings will make it easier for the reader to resonate with these feelings.
