How are you cope with quarantine and how has the situation affected your art and creativity? Have you been struck with any unexpected challenge?
Aaron. I have been coping well. My home doubles as a studio and therefore my workflow is uninterpreted and just as it was before the quarantine. I created some exciting pieces, as well. This process of creative isolation has made me take a step back and analyse and refocus. The only challenge I’ve faced is maintaining my energy level since I couldn't properly exercise.
Have you participated or came up with any art challenge? How you spent your quarantine time?
Aaron. I’ve participated in ‘Design Fights COVID’, an initiative by Art and Found and I’ve also partnered with a few bands to create some COVID specific creatives. Apart from that, I’m working on my apparel line and a series. This is something I’ve always wanted to do.
Can you elaborate on your contributions to 'Design Fights COVID'?
Aaron. Design Fights COVID partnered with a few NGOs which are helping smoothen various aspects of life. As I love animals, the NGO I partnered for is ‘World for All’. It is an organisation which provides medical aid and food to stray animals.
This pandemic has proven that during a crisis, people turn to art for solace. Do you think this will leave a lasting impression in the field of art?

Focusing on the Northeast pays off for the Indians
Over the past few years, the Indians have mined the Northeast for talent. The 2020 team got big-time contributions from former college righthanders Aaron Civale (Northeastern) and James Karinchak (Bryant). Waiting in the wings are three more prospects from the region, all from high school: third baseman Nolan Jones (Bensalem, Pa.), catcher Bo Naylor (Mississauga, Ont.) and righthander Lenny Torres (Beacon, N.Y). All five of those players were signed by area scout Mike Kanen, a former Baseball America intern. BA recently spoke with Kanen about his first impressions of those players. The interview is edited for brevity.
