The New Normal?Posted: April 11, 2020
I hope everyone at USkO and their loved ones are safe and healthy, in the upside-down world we’re in right now.
I noticed our small box of gloves and one of our fabric masks waiting for use near our front door, and felt compelled to sketch them. They represent a little snapshot in the enormous scope of this pandemic. Watercolor, pen and colored pencils all played a part in the sketch.
The box of gloves is what we had in our household supply. The fabric mask was made by me. I began sewing masks from scrap fabric and thread several weeks ago, when I sensed that this would become a necessity. Thanks to donations of bits of spare fabric and thread from some lovely people, I’ve been able to continue making a few masks for those who request.
