Blog / 2020 / The #LifesaversFanArt Campaign Is Catching On!
September 23, 2020
So far, the only artists who are making #LifesaversFanArt are professionals—people like Pat Krishnamurthy, Luis Alves, Cathy Hasty, and me.
But I’m hoping that more will join in our effort. The concept is straightforward:
- Choose a pop culture character you love.
- Make an image of the character wearing a blue surgical style mask.
- Share your image widely and tag it #LifesaversFanArt!
Create the image in any medium you like. You could paint or draw or handmake a photo collage, like Luis Alves did above for his Corona Kim.
The goal is to flood the interwebs with masked up fan art to promote healthy behavior and a sense of civic responsibility during the pandemic.
The more of us who are making these images and sharing them, the more likely that those who are ambivalent about wearing a mask might feel encouraged to do it!
Please contact me if you have any questions about participating in this project or about the images I have made for it. My #LifesaversFanArt pieces are for sale for $150 plus shipping—see all currently available artworks. Contact Pat, Luis, and Cathy directly at the links above if you are interested in their work!
