I want to highlight the little happy and positive moments in people's daily lives during these weird and difficult times. I ask people to tell me 5 moments that made them happy during quarantine, and then I illustrate one. If I can bring a smile to someone's face just for a minute, or remind someone of the beautiful things we can still have and do―I'm happy.

The project is called #Joinside because we can still find joy when we stay at home and are responsible, but also because we are joining sides―the whole world is together in this, we can hold tight for each other's sake, and we'll get out of this stronger.

I love the positive response to the project, and I love to hear little snippets of people's lives. It makes me very happy to be reminded of how wonderful humans are.

After the quarantine, maybe people will be able to remember the good things about slowing down and will stop always running around in a panic.
