squirtle cloth face mask (non medical)
The artist receives commission on every piece sold :)
There is evidence that suggests that wearing masks, even homemade ones from pillowcases or t-shirts, might help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. A homemade mask seems to be better than nothing, but is less effective than a surgical mask, which is less effective than an N95 mask. (NYTimes, Boston Globe, full sources)
The first priority is to manufacture N95 and surgical masks for our healthcare workers. However, our US-based manufacturer is not qualified to make medical masks.
What we can do is make non-medical, non-N95 cloth face masks out of our existing micropoly fabric for our customers. With the current pandemic, I think it's our responsibility to do what we can to help, and this is what we can do.
$1 per 3 masks sold will be donated to Flexport.org, a shipping company that's getting personal protective equipment (PPE) to the front lines in the US.
- You must wash your masks after every wear to prevent the risk of contamination
- Do not allow these masks to give you a false sense of security.
- They should be used in addition to social distancing, hand washing, and local / state / federal / science-based recommendations.
- These masks are non-medical, non-N95 are not approved for medical use whatsoever

- Khaled @kldpxl makes some of the best pixel art I’ve ever seen. There’s many great pixel artists I could list but he is definitely my favourite.
- David Jien @david_jien has created a fantastical world full of characters, places and stories that are drawn and sculptured in just the most detailed, exquisite, colourful imaginative style. His art looks like pencil drawn gameboy tapestries from out of space. Fully recommend following his work.
- @8pxl_ Again another sublime pixel artist, she particularly inspires me with her colour choices.
- Oliver Hamlin @oliver_hamlin I regularly browse his art, it’s full of quaint, gorgeous, playful and creative watercolour paintings of Pokemon.
- Jesse Treece @jessetreececollage is someone I’ve followed for the longest of time, learned a lot from him. Master of composition.
