THE BIG PAUSE (Part One)

 

In the week leading up to Easter 2020, I began making sketches for a graphic short story about the corona crisis. The goal was to document and use scenes from the corona crisis, to create a narrative that can provide a picture of how the crisis affects people physically, mentally and socially—but also about small nice moments of smiles and unexpected conversations with others.

 

The project is still under development.

About

Wet Cement Press is the project of a group of writers who once lived and worked together in San Francisco, but we don't live there anymore. Our tastes in literature run toward the lyrical and spontaneous, the raw and unsmooth. We have worked in publishing in New York and San Francisco and Moscow, but are not being investigated for our Russian connections, as far as we know. Several of us were involved in the Five Fingers Review & Press. One of us used to live in a tipi, another lives above a casino. Two of us were librarians, but no longer work there. We believe that the cement is always wet and that the world waits to be marked.
