Two Italian scientists working independently have concluded that the coronavirus has mutated into a less virulent strain in Italy. You will remember that Italy was the first country after China to be hit hard by covid-19. This suggests that in a couple of months all strains of the virus will have lost a lot of its punch. Which means after awhile it could be as social and communicable as a certain old artist I know quite well. I am heartened by this because there has been too much death and suffering already due to man's ineptness and the virus, probably in that order. Soon man might return to his sacred duty of fighting and killing amongst his own kind as is his nature. This is a 6 by 4.5 inch gel pen drawing with color pencil. It's Original Jones Art using his artistic license to render a lonely mutant with its teeth pulled in northwest Austin, Texas---and the rest of planet Earth.

There's definitely something that makes me think of Italy. Swift legs for playing soccer, perhaps, plus the hairdo))

Artist Reply: I think this was the result of what one might call 'wishful drawing.' Nikolay. I was conjuring what I thought would be a weakened microbe and it is entirely possible that a little bit of Italy seeped in during the process. :)
