I was asked to put a spotlight on the work being done by frontline supermarket staff during this stressful time. During college, I worked at my local supermarket and I was lucky to team up some of the most resilient and quietly confident people I’ve ever met; the checkout staff in particular could handle anything thrown at them.
My response celebrates this can-do attitude – with a wink, the cashier tells the reader that she is handling it – and there’s more than enough stock to go around!
I’m an illustrator based in the northside suburbs of Dublin. During a graphic-design internship, my life was changed when my boss told me to doodle on an iPad. I like projects around topics such as community, representation and culture.
When not hunched over a screen, I can be seen vegging out to video games and nodding along to podcasts during my daily (weekly) run. You can find me on all the socials and on amymcgrathillustration.com.
