Sharing is caring!

It’s time to highlight another incredibly talented plus size artist for our Plus Size Artist Spotlight series! This week we have the incredibly talented artist responsible for creating the super relatable Quarantine Bae series!

Meet Jonquel Pickney creator of the Quarantine Bae Art Series

¬†This is the quarantine self-portrait that started it all! We love all those items that surround her. The attention to detail is wonderful! Anyone spot the iPhone streaming D-Nice’s IG lives from early on in quarantine?!

The Quarantine Bae series happened completely by accident in 2020. I had fallen into a depression after the world had been placed in “time out” (I think most of us did).

This bae is looking toward a future in the new world with all the lessons she’s learned in 2020. Yesss, look at that vision board!!

I was in survivor mode every day, just trying to find something to occupy my mind and like most people I took to Netflix, snacking, finishing books, starting new hobbies, anything I could get my hands on. That’s what led me to start sketching again, something I had lost the joy of in previous years.

This bae is a nurse, finally relaxing and resting after she comes home after hours of treating patients. She knows exactly how serious this pandemic is and is doing all she can to help.

I decided to draw all the things that were keeping me sane in my room, surrounding me like a nest of safety.
