The Hermit

At first I was going to do something about covid lockdown and isolation but quickly realized that just about every hack artist on Instagram was doing some image with masks and microscopic viruses.

Many of the early sketches had the guy taking a big bite of the tree, but I went with the stick full of fish instead.
