Short Run presents a socially-distanced public display of Robyn Jordan's Covid-19 Comics.
Artwork is displayed in windows at McCaw Hall, west-side of the Armory, Fisher Pavilion, and in kisosks near International Fountain, Mural Amphitheatre and Pacific Science Center.

Artist statement: "What has it meant to live through this time? It’s been different for each of us, but many of our experiences are shared. We’ve watched our collective anxiety creep to a boiling point as we’ve learned to fear one another’s touch and presence.
I made this series as a document of my day-to-day reality: parenting a toddler, teaching remotely, finding safety in my home. Seattle has its unique story of 2020 that will be told and re-written as the narrative evolves. I hope we remember the small moments, along with the big ones: the first time you wore a mask to a grocery store; the way you feel when a friend is standing just 4 feet away; how you spent your days when the air outside was un-breathable."

Robyn Jordan is a cartoonist and illustrator based in Seattle. Along with a decade’s worth of self-published mini-comics, she also makes images and illustrated stories for clients such as The Nib, Mutha Magazine, BRIGHT Magazine, Narratively, The Stranger, Seattle Art Museum, King County Metro, SEIU, and The Seattle Weekly. She has an MFA from Parsons The New School for Design, and her work has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Seattle Review of Books, and Vox.

Short Run Seattle celebrates and strengthens Seattle’s lauded comix and arts community.

The printing and presentation of this project is made possible by The Office of Arts & Culture, 4Culture, and the Literary Arts Emergency Fund. Printing by Color One Photo.
