Shubham Jadhav, 23, works as a senior illustrator at a digital marketing firm, Insomniacs and his love for sketching dates back to the time he was a kid.

While, like the rest of us, he is under lockdown, his mind has been travelling across the city through his art. "I have created a series around Coronavirus in an attempt to beat fear with humour, he says.

Jadhav's series includes pictures of everyday Mumbai, and its people but with a twist. While in reality it is the people who are tip-toeing around the dangers of the virus, in Jadhav's series, it is Coronavirus that's dodging Mumbaikars and getting run over by an autorickshaw. "Until a vaccine comes along, we need to keep our spirits up."
