Long Live Earth

Stylized as an old wartime era illustration seen in propaganda posters and magazine covers, I wanted to create a symbol to forward the notion that although the whole world is distressed we will conquer COVID-19, our temporary tyrant. In terminology, coronavirus refers to its spikes that resemble a crown, hence I pushed toward a cruel king design for the virus. The malady monarch looms behind its unwilling subject. Utilizing a protective mask, the earth fights against its rule. Medieval banners host a revision of the phrase “long live the king!” indicative that the earth will eventually ascend, dethroning King Corona.
