It’s a testing time for countless creatives – many have lost work, but in amongst the growing anxiety, there shines a gem of pure positivity. When illustrator Stephanie Unger found herself at home with most of her projects cancelled, she took to Nintendo game, Animal Crossing. What initially started as a light-hearted attempt to replicate her own life in the game, soon turned into a hugely popular virtual art exhibition. At a time when most galleries are shut, and social distancing is keeping us from seeing friends or meeting new people, the exhibition was welcomed and embraced by Nintendo players across the world. Here, we talk to Steph about the process of creating artwork to fill a virtual space, getting a DM from actress Brie Larson, and the power of online community.
