New! Face Masks at Redbubble

Redbubble have just launched face masks so you can now buy them with over 100 of my cute characters and patterns!

They’re for personal use, not medical, but fine for wearing out to more crowded place if your country/state is recommending it. Best of all, Redbubble are donating a mask to charity for every one purchased.

They’re available now for around £8 or buy any 4 to get 20% off! Face masks are printed and shipped from the USA but international shipping is usually very affordable. Let me know if you get one!

PS. you might spot a couple of new designs in my shop – more on that next week.
