Here is the fifth part of my visual essay A.C.2020. I created them to express the anxiety and uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The visual essay is comprised of self-contained single-page stories.

The first page is my take on Winsor McKay's Little Nemo in Slumberland. As Steven Heller eloquently put in his The Daily Heller blog: "Throughout the pandemic, Mirko Ilic has evoked his own emotional spectrum (light to dark) through a continuous series of sequential images... 'Little Mirko in COVID Land,' so clearly expresses the common angst—a universal feeling of, at once, isolation, separation, lamentation, liberation and, now, the undefinably discomfiting excitation of being released back into a (hopefully) COVID-free world."

The second page is about the deserted Lincoln Center in New York City which evokes association to Giorgio de Chirico's painting.
