Illustrator Kera Till is the originator of this reimagined metro map. She takes the essence of a metro map and uses the new patterns of commuting within our homes, thanks to our collective isolation.
“I am so happy that my ‘Commuting in Corona Times’ map was shared so much all over the world on social media. I was trying to distract myself in quarantine and came up with this idea. I drew it quickly, posted it on Instagram, went to bed and the next morning it had already gone viral.”
