Pandemics and other medical emergencies can be difficult for children. Seeing everyone wear face masks when they go out in public might be confusing or even a little scary. Children want to see faces. It helps them feel connected and comforted.
I’ve illustrated a series of silly cartoon masks to help take a bit of the edge off during the quarantine. If you have children, or if you just want to show off your sense of humor, give one of these masks a try. They are available for order on Teepublic and Redbubble. The Teepublic masks cost a bit more but include an extra layer of cloth.
Also, these masks are one-size-fits-most so I can’t guarantee they would work on small children. But kids can still laugh when they see the grown-ups wearing them.
