Nutshell Studies of Quarantine: Part Three, Summer 2020

Nutshell Studies of Quarantine is a four-part series that follows Frida as she navigates the last year of our lives. In Part Three, it is Summer 2020. Frida seeks relief as anxiety takes hold while watching the never-ending despair of the 2020 news cycle.

in a six panel, black-and-white comic, Frida watches the news. The announcer says, "in today's news, more cases, more death." Days pass and the news never changes. Exhausted Frida turns on a "True Crime" show — just to have a break.
