Accessible here this open, generously spirited, and intimate publication marks a snapshot of DJCAD art and design students’ experience of life drawing and creating a drawing community during the recent sensibilities of lockdown.

The idea of generating a capture of the students’ recent output, however that was to be interpreted was simply sown. The students ran with the idea and collaborated, curated, edited, and produced a series of digital captures, which has evolved to this publication, kindly supported by the University’s Museum Services.
