The limited print 'William' is part of the illustration series 'Quarantine Characters'. A series about some very different personalities Lieke Milder was in lockdown with in a hostel in Cusco, Peru, during the COVID-19 crisis. Each person is pictured in their most iconic way of coping with the strange situation they were suddenly in.
"Travelers aren't always young, like the tall grey-bearded William. With his ponytail and nose-ring he would perfectly fit into Woodstock. This American hippie could retire early by living abroad in cheaper countries. He preferred to have his privacy, so I assumed being in lockdown with so many people was a big challenge for him. Therefore you could mostly find him on the edge of the balcony smoking a cigarette while viewing the mountains. Although he had a hard time, sometimes I spotted sparks of joy in his big blue eyes when he was listening to music, playing cards or joining the group meals."
