To express our feeling during this period of self-isolation in Milan, at the same time as the beautiful assignments for our clients throughout the world, we created a series of illustrations inspired by the impact of COVID-19. They are personal works, part of our artistic research. We choose topics that touch our sensitivity and develop them by giving our free interpretation. Now the images are available for reuse and artistic prints. ©Balbusso Twins images available for reuse on our stock collection @theispot: https://www.theispot.com/stock/aebalbusso
