Alan Dunne’s graphic short story and illustrated short film, Home Truths, based around Covid-19 and its impact on residents at The Croft and Hollybrook Lodge nursing homes in Inchicore, has been shortlisted for the World Illustration Awards.

“Over a number of Zoom sessions, I engaged with the residents who reflected on their life experiences as they faced the winter months, with poignant stories brimming with humour, tragedy, and hope. I edited these accounts into a narrative and illustrated the characters and their stories in pen and ink,” says Dunne.

They ended up being projected on to City Hall last year as part of Winter Lights.

The overall winners will be announced on November 1.
