Confinement, restrictive rules, social distancing... It's hard to keep a cool head in the age of the coronavirus.

Between washing your hands and calling your grandparents, here are a few Instagram artists' accounts you might consider browsing in a bid to keep calm.

Throughout the year, Sydney-based graphic designer Josie Doodles produces hand-drawn comics -- "to get away from her computer" -- which she publishes on Instagram. More often than not her adorable little round characters offer inspiring solutions for day-to-day existential worries.

@chibirdart

"Cute and motivational drawings to brighten your day!" Little plump animals set the tone for this account which offers gently humorous advice for everyday life. In a recent publication, chibird presents a typology of six stay-at-home characters including a chick at rest, a house-cleaning hedgehog and a penguin who enjoys hobbies and finding things to do.
