During the first Covid-19 pandemic lockdown artist Chris Judge was enjoying a day outside with his family when he spotted some pink clouds in the sky that looked a lot like a monkey and a bear. So he took some photos of them and then doodled on the pictures before posting them on social media. He got such positive feedback online that he decided to do one a day and that’s how the “Daily Cloud” project began.
A Daily Cloud resonates with people around the world because everyone can identify with looking up into the sky and seeing shapes in clouds. It’s a universal joy.
The Dublin-based artist also gets pictures of clouds sent to him from his fans to draw on.

The project has become so popular Judge has spun them out into prints and calendars. Judge has also illustrated a children’s book, Cloud Babies, with Eoin Colfer, the author of the Artemis Fowl series, a story that features “cloud babies” in the sky.
