Artwork by Brian Hindson

This is a sketch of the food service vocational-tech quarantine area, where I was put with 32 guys when I first got to Federal Correctional Institution, Big Spring in November 2020. We were on military cots with a temporary toilet and shower, and we all subsequently got COVID-19. We slept about one foot away from each other. I used this sketch later on a handkerchief drawing.
