My name is Sebastian Simons and I’m a 24-year-old commercial artist and designer, living and working in the beautiful city of Cape Town, South Africa. Ever since I could remember I’ve always had a pencil or a pen in hand sketching, designing, and conceptualising new ideas. I received my qualification from the College of Cape Town and my goal is to hone my skills and use them to build my career and acquire my degree with further studies. I’m currently working independently as a full-time freelance creative, specialising in custom illustration and graphic design. I’ve also been known to dabble with photography and lettering from time to time.
I was inspired by the people in the frontline that protect us from COVID-19. We have lost loved ones but we still persevere. I used a comic style because comics are mostly about superheroes and the frontline workers are the heroes too. The virus we are fighting is the villain. Essential workers have risked their lives to save other lives. Heroes always conquer and defeat the enemy.
